Lafene Health Center is K-State students' cost-effective, health and well-being facility.

Change Healthcare, one of the largest electronic pharmacy insurance processors, was the victim of a cyber-security attack on Wednesday, February 21. Because of this, pharmacies across the nation cannot process any pharmacy insurance claims at this time. There is no timetable for resolution of this problem. In the meantime, all pharmacy charges will reflect the cash price. You have the option to pay the cash price and seek reimbursement from your insurance company or wait to pay us once the issue is resolved. We will update this message as more information becomes available. For now all pharmacy charges posted to your Lafene account from Wednesday, February 21, until further notice may be inaccurate and you should wait to pay them.
