Does my student need health insurance?

Health insurance is not required for SSU students to use the SHC and the SHC does not bill or accept health insurance. However, health insurance is strongly recommended to help students and their families cover the cost of off-campus medical needs such as urgent care or hospital visits, ambulance transport, specialty care, complex diagnositc tests, out of area care or other services that are beyond the scope or hours of operation of the SHC. Students should have a basic understanding of any third party coverage they may have and always carry their insurance card with them. For more information see Health Insurance.
