Appointment, Fees & Eligibility

Initial Appointment – What to Expect

Please do your best to arrive 10 to 15 minutes early for your initial appointment to complete a registration packet. Registration packets are available in the SPCC waiting area.  If you prefer, SPCC registration forms may be printed out and completed in advance of your appointment (Please remember to bring these forms with you to the appointment.) Students should also bring their Jefferson student I.D. and insurance card for verification. The initial counseling appointment typically lasts fifty to sixty minutes so please plan accordingly.

During the initial appointment, you will meet with a SPCC counselor and develop a course of action with your counselor, which may include continuing therapy on campus or receiving a referral to an off-campus provider.  Some students may resolve their concerns during the initial three sessions and decide that no further sessions are required.  Some students decide to see a SPCC counselor on an ongoing basis.

Student – Fees & Eligibility

All Thomas Jefferson University students with an active and valid Jefferson student I.D. are eligible for three visits without charge at the SPCC.

For students who are interested in ongoing services beyond the third visit, SPCC counselors are in-network with a limited number of insurance providers.  The SPCC accepts the United HealthCare Student Resources Plan offered by Thomas Jefferson University (Students will be responsible for their copay each visit.)

For students who are interested in ongoing services at the SPCC and do not have a participating insurance, the SPCC does offer services at reduced fees.  For students who prefer an in-network and/or off-campus provider, a SPCC counselor will be happy to assist you in getting connected with a community provider.

For additional questions and/or information about fees or eligibility, please call the SPCC at (215) 503-2817.

House Staff – Fees & Eligibility

All Thomas Jefferson University House Staff are eligible for three visits without charge per year.  During the initial meeting, the resident will develop a course of action with their physician, which may include continuing therapy on campus or receiving a referral to an off-campus provider. Occasionally, one session proves sufficient.  In some situations, the resident decides to see a EHWP physician on an ongoing basis. 

For residents who desire ongoing counseling, the Emotional Health and Wellness Program offers services at reduced fees for House Staff.  For those residents who prefer to see an in-network provider, our psychiatrists can assist in getting connected with an off-campus provider.  

For additional questions and/or information about fees and eligibility, please call the Director of the EHWP, Deanna Nobleza, MD at (215) 503-2817.
