The Student Health center files insurance for visits, lab work, and procedures performed at the clinic. Because students pay a health fee each semester, there are no co-payments collected nor is there any balance billing from the clinic. The cost of medications prescribed is the student’s responsibility. If a student has lab work done that is sent out to the hospital or to another lab, the cost of the lab then becomes between the insurance company, the lab, and the student. Students should present their valid insurance card at each visit and bring their Bobcat Card ID to each visit.
When registered for the current semester the Health Fee is automatically included in registration charges. If not enrolled for Maymester/and or summer, students registered for the upcoming fall semester have the option of paying a reduced Health Fee of $50 for use of the Student Health Clinic and the Wellness and Recreation Center during Maymester and summer semesters.
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
