Fees & Insurance

Student Health Fee

The health fee is included in the USF tuition – so if you are a registered student who has paid tuition, you've paid the fee. This fee helps to offset your medical costs at Student Health Wellness Center (SHWC), which means you can see a healthcare provider for general medical consultations and quality specialty services at student rates that are deeply discounted compared to community providers and clinics. Registered students can receive initial diagnosis, treatment, and follow-up care, and  have reduced costs for general medical office visits or consultations. Minimal fees are charged for specialty care and prescriptions.  We send out labs to an independent facility, so any co-pay, co-insurance, or deductible amounts for outside labs cannot be waived.

The health fee also provides registered students with free services from the Counseling Center, Center for Student Well-being, and the Center for Victim Advocacy and Violence Prevention.

The health fee is not insurance. Insurance is not required to utilize Student Health & Wellness Center (SHWC), however, medical insurance is recommended to assist with paying medical treatment off-campus, emergencies, travel, and for services not provided by our clinic.

Minimal fees for procedures, specialty services, medications, lab tests, medical supplies, immunization shots, and allergy injections are additional. Some fees may be covered by your medical insurance; check your policy. We understand that students may have limited financial resources and make every effort to keep additional charges affordable. The Fee Schedule does not list low-volume services; these are charged on a case-by-case basis.

USF Student Health & Wellness Center strives to deliver high-quality healthcare and education to USF students and offer a variety of medical services. We combine a wide range of medical, counseling, prevention, and wellness services to help students remain healthy and succeed academically. We can bill private insurance or services can be paid by credit card, debit card, or put on your OASIS account, so students don't delay necessary medical treatment. With OASIS, students can be seen when they need us, but pay later. SHWC understands that students may have limited financial resources and will make every effort to keep additional charges minimal.
