Student Health Services

Insurance & Payments

Payment is expected at the time when services are rendered. The University accepts cash, checks, Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Discover and the CarolinaCard.

UofSC-Columbia Students Must Have Health Insurance

*Proof of Health Insurance applies to: Undergraduates taking six hours or more and paying the student health fee, graduate students taking six hours or more, graduate students with assistantships, UofSC School of Medicine students enrolled in 1 or more hours and all international students.

  • Student Health Insurance Plan is the ONLY in-network plan at Student Health Services. If you waived the plan, some services may incur out-of-network costs. 
  • Most individuals and families need to waive Student Health Insurance Plan once per academic year
  • Additional department requirements may apply

 

The student health fee covers office visits in Primary Care and Women's Health and off-sets the cost of specialty visits like Sports Medicine and Psychiatry. The student health fee also covers up to 10 individual counseling visits per academic year as well as all group counseling and wellness, prevention and advocacy services and programs. 

We will file claims with third-party insurance plans. Please check with your insurance carrier to determine your in-network providers. Student Health Services is in-network with many pharmacy plans, but not in-network with most health insurance carriers. Typically, out-of-network deductibles have to be met before third-party insurance plans will pay claims. Some insurance plans do not provide out-of-network coverage - please check your insurance policy to see what your out-of-network coverage entails.
