Wimbledon Athletics is proud to partner with Huston-Tillotson University to provide cardiovascular testing for student athletes on school grounds Mon, October 16th through Wed, October 25th. Ensuring student athletes and their families are made aware of any underlying cardiovascular issues as early as possible is very important to us.
Tests include EKGs and echocardiograms to detect heart abnormalities that can cause sudden cardiac arrest and non-invasive vascular ultrasound to identify vascular conditions common to athletes (such as blood clots). Qualified sonographers (techs) perform the tests professionally and maintain the privacy of each student. Board certified reading cardiologists, pediatric cardiologists, and radiologists interpret test results and report detailed findings. If anything significant is identified, the school’s designated point of contact will be notified immediately.
Wimbledon Health Partners will bill your health insurance for the services provided, accepting what your carrier deems usual and customary (we do not balance bill!). As required by law, WHP will bill for the deductible or co-insurance, if applicable. If a balance is due, WHP can offer a payment plan or can eliminate the balance entirely for those in genuine hardship situations. There are a number of circumstances that qualify as a financial hardship, including being a college student with significant financial restrictions.

Please be aware that if you have a Health Savings Account (HSA), Flexible Spending Account (FSA), or Health Reimbursement Account (HRA), funds may be deducted automatically if a balance is due, even if a waiver has been submitted. Please check with your insurance carrier, as each policy is different.
