However, SHAC strongly recommends that all students have health insurance to help defray healthcare costs. Please have your insurance information when you make an appointment. Bring your insurance card at time of service.

SHAC can submit medical insurance claims for the Student Health Insurance plan.

SHAC also accepts most of the following plans (however, coverage is dependent upon your benefit eligibility):
