Student Health Insurance Overview

All eligible students are required to have and maintain health insurance coverage while enrolled at HSC. Eligible students are automatically enrolled in the university Student Health Insurance policy with the option to opt out with verification of comparable coverage. Comparable coverage must meet the minimum standards as outlined by the federal government’s Affordable Care act, in addition to providing inpatient, outpatient and prescription drug coverage. 

Degree seeking domestic students enrolled in the School of Biomedical Sciences (excluding MedSci online students) and School of Public Health are exempt from the insurance requirement and can enroll on a voluntary basis as long as credit hours do not exceed 50% online.

Payment is due at the time of your appointment. Billable services include nurse visits, primary care services, treatment of minor illness or injury, and testing. The Medical Services Fee ( §54.5081), included in HSC student tuition, will cover the cost of yearly TB Testing and Influenza vaccines.

Please note: While the university may accept many policies of health insurance with comparable coverage, the HSC Student Health Clinic may not, or could be out-of-network. If you plan to utilize the Student Health Clinic, please call 817-735-5051 to verify your insurance is accepted. 

All students are eligible to purchase optional vision and dental plans. Enrollment in the student health insurance plan is NOT required in order to participate. Enrollment in and payment for these optional coverages is the sole responsibility of the student.
