PPD Testing Info

  1. If you have Aetna Student Health Insurance – Aetna will cover the PPD test cost and this $20 charge will not appear on your student tuition. If a chest X-ray is required, you should check with the Student Health representative covering the Orientation PPD registration process for Aetna coverage of this requirement.

  2. Non-Aetna student health insurance (private carrier or on a parent’s insurance plan): the PPD $20 charge is placed on your student tuition, however, you are offered a “receipt” at the time of the PPD test, to submit to your own insurance plan for reimbursement. You are responsible for payment of the $15 PPD charge charged to your student account regardless of whether you submitted to your own insurance provider for reimbursement.
