Fees & Insurance
When an SHWC service involves a fee, there are three ways to pay:
- You can self-pay using a debit or credit card
- Transfer the charges to your OASIS account
- Have your insurance company billed directly if you have coverage
Charges on your OASIS account must be paid prior to the end of the semester to avoid a registration hold for the next semester. You are responsible for the balance of all charges not covered by insurance.
Whether you have your own coverage or are listed on your parent's or spouse's plan, SHWC accepts many health insurance plans and you won't have to pay a co-pay for general medical office visits.
How to use insurance at SHWC:
Check to make sure we accept your plan.
- Contact your insurance company to understand what services are covered.
- If you have an HMO plan, tell your insurance company you want one of our medical doctors (MDs) to be listed as your primary care physician (PCP).
- Call 813-974-2331 to make an appointment.
- Bring your insurance card (or a copy of both sides) with you to your appointment.
- SHWC will automatically bill your insurance company for covered services. You are responsible for paying for any non-covered costs.
If you provide SHWC with insurance information but do not want your insurance billed for a specific service, be sure to let the SHWC staff know you want to self-pay when you check out.
