We are not filing insurance at this time. In order to better control the need to increase the health fee and due to rising healthcare/medical supply costs, we plan to file claims to the student's health insurance for clinic services. We plan to start this in January of 2014. We do not plan to balance bill the student for any part of medical services the Health Clinic provides. The current health fee would serve as the co-pay and would cover services not covered by insurance.
The Georgia Board of Regents has negotiated with United Health Care to provide an insurance plan for college students. Information on student insurance is available at www.uhcsr.com
All students are encouraged to have health insurance. Insurance is essential in case of emergencies and/or hospitalizations. Students should be aware of his/her coverage and keep a copy of their card or information on their person. They will be asked to provide health insurance information every time they come to the clinic for an appointment. If your child is currently covered by health insurance, check with your plan to make certain he/she is covered in the Milledgeville area.
