  • Graduate Students receiving fellowships that fully fund their tuition
  • Graduate and undergraduate students enrolled in programs that require proof of health insurance as determined by Georgia State University

Additionally, a voluntary plan is available for those students not covered under the mandatory plan who are enrolled in at least 6 credit hours.

The Student Health Clinic will only file health claims for students insured by United Healthcare. If you have any questions, please call 404-413-1930 for more information.

How to file a medical claim with your own insurance company:
If your health insurance company provides coverage for care provided at Georgia State University Student Health Clinic, it is your responsibility to know the limitations and requirements of your plan prior to receiving services. In many cases, your insurance plan may require per-authorization and possibly an out-of-network referral in order for the service to be covered. If you are unsure of your coverage, please contact the customer service department of your insurance plan. Most companies list their phone number on the back of the insurance card.

Check with your insurance company on how to submit a claim form (companies have different requirements). Typically you must fill out your insurance company’s claim form and send it along with a copy of the Billing Invoice. Please arrange for the insurance company to reimburse you.

Georgia State University Student Health Clinic cannot accept the responsibility for submitting or collecting your insurance claim or for negotiating a settlement on a disputed claim.
