CHARGES, BILLING & INSURANCE

  • The UF health fee, a per-credit hour service fee included with tuition, helps cover most office visits at the Student Health Care Center; however, this fee does not cover all possible service charges at the SHCC, including but not limited to physicals, procedures, lab tests, X-rays, medications and medical equipment. Click here to learn more.
  • We recommend reviewing all insurance benefits and exclusions before your first visit. Contact your insurance company and provide them our tax identification name and number (Florida Clinical Practice Association, 591680273) to learn how your policy will work at our facility.
  • The SHCC will bill your insurance company for you if you provide all policy information. You are financially responsible for service charges that are not covered by your policy. Click here to learn more.

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION: MD & PA Students

All medical and psychiatric physicians at SHCC hold faculty positions in the College of Medicine and, therefore, may have academic and/or clinical teaching responsibilities with medical and physician assistant students. Most of the teaching assignments bring the faculty member into direct contact and academic involvement with only a few students in each class year.

Because of the potential for conflict, medical and physician assistant students presenting for services at the SHCC or the SHCC@Shands satellite clinic will be given the option to see: a faculty member who has not, and will not, have an academic role with them; or a healthcare provider in the community. Costs may be reimbursed by any health insurance the student carries or may require an out-of-pocket expense.

  • NOTE: At the beginning of the semester, students enrolled in the UF insurance plan have only this option; however, a referral may be requested for preferred community based providers to assist in claims coverage.
