Summer Health Fee 2017

The UNCG Student Health Services works hard to meet student healthcare needs and provide continuity of care in the summer months for both enrolled students and those not taking summer classes but still living or working in the area,

    • Students enrolled in each summer session can access all the Student Health Services benefits throughout the summer as they did in the fall and spring semesters.

 

“Non-enrolled” students are individuals who were enrolled in the spring 2017 semester and are enrolled for the fall 2017 semester, but not enrolled in one or both summer sessions.

  • “Non-enrolled” students can be seen in the SHS Medical Clinic for $20 / appointment. There will be a reduced rate for any other services (lab, x-rays, etc.) received at SHS during that appointment.
    • “Non-enrolled” students can be seen at the SHS Counseling Center for a fee of $10 / counseling session and $20 / session with the psychiatric nurse practitioner.
    • Summer session and summer fees will be in effect from May 15, 2017 – August 5, 2017.

 

The UNCG Student Health Services is open Monday-Friday, from 8:00 am to 5:00 pm, from May 15 until fall semester classes begin in early August, when hours return to Monday-Friday from 8:00 am to 6:00 pm and Sunday evenings 5:00 pm to 8:00 pm.

We look forward to continuing to be an accessible and affordable healthcare provider for UNCG students during the summer months.

 

Student Health Fee

The Student Health Service fee that UNCG students pay as part of their general university tuition entitles them to many professional services offered by the Student Health Service. The fee itself pays for any office visit charges, meaning a student does not have to pay to be treated by a health care provider. However, the fee does not cover services such as procedures, labs, immunizations, orthopedic equipment, or pharmacy.

Fee for Service

Students paying a health fee as part of their tuition are entitled to use the facility without an office visit charge. Students who do not pay a health fee must pay a Student Health access fee to receive services.

Please call (336) 334-5340 for questions or to find out more about specific fee charges. 
 

Payments

Payment for any charges incurred by a student is due on the day of service. We accept several forms of payment: cash, check, MasterCard/Visa/Discover, or students may charge the balance to the university Cashier’s Office*.

Charges posted at the Cashier's Office are noted as a “Student Health charge” and this posting reveals no specifics concerning the actual visit. The Student Health Service holds with the utmost regard a patient's right to privacy and information concerning a visit is not accessible by any person outside of Student Health Service without expressed written permission from the patient.

*An important note about charges sent to the Cashier’s Office: If charges are deferred to the cashier, payment should be made to the University Cashier's office within 30 days following services rendered or before the end of the current semester, whichever is sooner. Until payment is received, please be aware that records may be tagged, which may prevent registration for classes, receiving of course schedules, graduation, or being able to receive transcripts. Beyond the current semester of enrollment, balances remaining on the student’s account will begin to accrue interest and may be submitted for collections to the North Carolina Attorney General which could cause garnishment of state income tax refunds and involvement of external collection agencies.

Please pay your bill at the cashier's office in a timely manner.

Insurance

UNCG students meeting specific eligibility criteria are required to have health insurance. UNCG offers an affordable Student Health Insurance Plan for students who need coverage or for those desiring to change insurance plans. For more information about the Student Health Insurance Plan, eligibility requirements, how to enroll or, if you already have existing coverage, how to waive out of the plan, visit our Student Health Insurance Page.

UNCG Student Health Services files claims for Student Health Insurance Plan policy holders. SStudents who are not enrolled in the student health insurance plan must bring their current insurance card and present it at the time of check in.  

Students who have policies through other insurance carriers may request a walk out statement that can be used to self file claims. Please be advised that the Student Health may not be in network for other insurance carriers. It is strongly advisable that a student consults their individual policy regarding benefits and coverage before seeking care at the Student Health Center. 

The Student Health Service Pharmacy does accept a variety of prescription drug plans. Please visit our pharmacy page for more information.
