Some medical expenses may be covered by insurance carried by you or your parents. In addition, each year you attend Southern as a full-time student, you receive accident protection through the university's insurance carrier. The premium is included in the General Fee paid by all full-time students. 

Please be advised that you are required to have some kind of insurance for illness. You are required to present your card at the time of service. Health Services is not responsible for bills that your Health Insurance does not cover. We will do our best to help you get the service covered, but we will not pay the bill for you.

In addition to accident coverage, the university makes available an optional sickness insurance plan, which covers some surgical expenses and hospitalization costs. This plan is mandatory for full-time students who are not otherwise insured. There is also a dental insurance plan that can be purchased through the Aetna Student Health. In the event of accident or sickness, the insured must obtain a medical claim form as soon as possible from the Student Health Center.
