Beginning in January 2014, the Student Health center will be filing insurance for visits to the clinic. Because students pay a health fee each semester, there will be no co-payments collected nor will there be any balance billing from the clinic. There will be a $5.00 fee for any medications received in the clinic and for any lab tests done in the clinic. Labs sent to the hospital may be paid for in the clinic or can be filed on the student’s insurance. The cost of medications prescribed through a retail pharmacy is the student’s responsibility.
Student should present their insurance card at each visit and bring their Bobcat Card ID. Students are seen in the clinic by appointment. There are limited walk-in visits available.
When registered for the current semester the Health Fee is automatically included in registration charges. If not enrolled for Maymester/and or summer, returning students now have the option of paying a reduced Health Fee of $50 for use of the Student Health Clinic during Maymester, Summer I and Summer II semesters. Students must be registered for the upcoming fall semester in order to use this opportunity.
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
