However, there are additional charges for pharmacy needs, laboratory tests, medical procedures and immunizations. All charges are your responsibility. Payment is required at the time of service by cash, check or credit card.
Georgia State University Health Insurance
The Georgia Board of Regents has contracted with United Healthcare to provide insurance for Georgia State University students for the 2015-2016 academic year. Student Financial Services provides detailed information regarding available student health insurance plans.
The following groups of Georgia State University students are required to have health insurance:
- Undergraduate and graduate international Students holding “F” or “J” visa status
- Graduate students receiving full-time tuition waivers
- Graduate students receiving fellowships that fully fund their tuition
- Undergraduate and graduate 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 six credit hours.
Filing a Claim with Other Insurance Companies:
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. If your health insurance company provides coverage for care provided at the 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 pre-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 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.
