Students with BlueCross BlueShield (BCBS) health insurance plans now can utilize Student Health Services (SHS) just as they do any other participating provider. SHS will file any charges to the insurance plan and coverage will be determined by the plan benefits and policy terms. Deductibles, co-insurance, and any out of pocket amounts are determined by the individual policy; we encourage students and parents to become familiar with what their BCBS plan covers as well as any exclusions or limitations that may be stipulated.
Students desiring to file their BCBS insurance MUST bring a copy of their current insurance information and present it upon check in when they come for visits at SHS. If the policy holder is a parent, the student must also provide that parent’s name, date of birth, and address.
There is no co-pay at SHS because the student fees paid with tuition cover the office visit charge. Distance education students do not pay student fees, so they will be subject to a $30 SHS access fee for each visit.
Any charges that are not covered by a student’s BCBS plan will be sent to the Cashier’s Office and applied to the student’s main tuition bill. Those charges should be paid timely to avoid issues with registration, obtaining grades, or requesting transcripts.
