Student Health Services
Important Message Regarding Health Insurance
- As of August 2017: SCSU is no longer requiring students to obtain health insurance as a condition of attending the University. Additionally, there is no longer a Univeristy-sponsored insurance plan.
- What does this mean? This means students will not be charged for a University-sponsored insurance plan and will no longer have to complete an online insurance waiver form to avoid being charged.
- How does this affect me? Student Health Services are available to all registered SCSU students, regardless of insurance status. We offer a variety of wide-ranging services at minimal cost. While most of our medical services are free of charge, things such as prescriptions, laboratory tests, and radiology exams are charged directly to the patient. Without adequate health insurance you could potentially be left with a significant medical bill or be unable to receive the care or medicine you need.
- Take Home Message: Student Health Services STRONGLY encourage ALL STUDENTS to get and keep a health insurance policy in the event of a serious illness, injury, or unanticipated surgery.
- What about Accident Insurance? As part of your enrollment at the University, all full-time students are covered under the University’s Accident Insurance policy, which is different from typical health insurance policies.
- How can I get health insurance? Access Health CT can help you identify health insurance options that are best for you. Call 1-800-354-2428 to see what plans are available or to see if you are eligible for Medicaid coverage.
