What's going on at the SHC?
It's Worth Knowing - STI Screening Service
Screening for sexually transmitted infections at the Student Health Center is not a new
service, but has been revamped to better accommodate the need of students and
to make the overall process easier. Students can now be seen in our nurse
clinic for STI screenings, which cuts the cost of an office visit and makes the
overall service more efficient. Students will also be able to receive a FREE HIV test provided by the SHARE grant and funded by SAMHSA. If you have insurance with preventive coverage, you may not pay anything at all for this service. If you are uninsured or out of network screenings will cost about $65. This price includes screening for Gonorrhea, Chlamydia, Syphilis and a FREE HIV test. For more information or to make an appointment, please call 512-245-2161.
TB Skin Testing Outreach
The Student Health Center at Texas State University will be holding TB Skin Testing outreaches during the spring semester. The testing will take place in the Student Health Center Conference Room on the second floor. Insurance is accepted. Students must bring their insurance card with them. The cost of the test is $20 if the student is uninsured or out of network.
It is important for students to know and understand that after receiving a TB skin test, they MUST come back within 48-72 hours to obtain the TB reading. Students who are tested on Tuesday must return on Thursday or Friday for their TB reading and students who are tested on Wednesday must return on Friday.
Students who would like to get a TB test prior to the outreach can call the Health Center at (512) 245-2161 to schedule an appointment between semesters. We are now open for the semester.
QuantiFERON-TB Gold (QFT®) is another form of TB testing that is offered at the Student Health Center. It is a simple blood test that aids in the detection of the bacteria which causes tuberculosis (TB). Unlike the TB skin test, it requires only a single patient visit to draw a blood sample. Results can be available within 48 hours. Students who want to make an appointment for the blood test can call the Student Health Center at (512) 245-2161. Faculty members who want to schedule a group of students for the blood test should contact Debbie Karajankovich firstname.lastname@example.org.
