Health Insurance

Health insurance is not required for a visit at the Student Health Center (SHC). However, since there is no overnight, weekend, or long-term medical care provided by the SHC, health insurance may be needed to reimburse a portion of the costs of outside hospitalization, special tests, and specialty care that are not available at the SHC.
