Cost of Service
Student Health Fee
The WSSU Student Health Fee does not cover all services in Student Health Services. There is a charge for all off campus services such as special laboratory tests, procedures, and prescriptions. There is also a charge for some on campus services which include certain immunizations, special injections, laboratory tests, and copies of health records. The Health Center does accept cash and/or credit card payments. Any charges will be charged to student accounts and payment may be made to the Student Accounts office in the Thompson Center. Actual costs for services is available upon request.
Medical Insurance Requirements
Students are required to carry the University's mandatory health insurance paid through tuition, unless proof of other active health coverage is provided. Students may waive out of the University's plan by providing proof of current health insurance coverage. It is the student's responsibility each Fall and Spring semester to register online to enter personal demographic information or to complete an on-line waiver which, when approved, will exempt them from University coverage.
For general illness or medical questions after normal hours of operation, calls are forwarded directly to the HealthLink Nurse-On-Call or you may call HealthLink direct by dialing toll-free 1-888-267-3675 to speak with a Nurse. Students experiencing life threatening or medical emergencies should contact Police and Public Safety at 336-750-2911 and additionally alert their Residence Hall RA.
Student Blue, underwritten by Blue Cross Blue Shield of North Carolina (BCBSNC), will be the insurance vendor on all 16 UNC campuses. Students must enroll in or waive (opt out of) the coverage no later that the documented deadline. Students that do not submit an approved waiver, and have not enrolled themselves in the program, will be enrolled automatically.
Students who have existing family or individual coverage through another Blue Cross Blue Shield plan must still go through the enrollment/wavier process.

Students are offered the Student Health insurance through Blue Cross Blue Shield of North Carolina (BCBSNC) which will cover most costs associated with clinical visits. The charge associated with the BCBSNC insurance will not be billed to students’ account if students are covered by an alternate medical insurance plan comparable to the BCBSNC plan. The NC Medicaid plan will be evaluated on the same criteria as other medical plans. Students are responsible for all charges not covered by their respective medical plans.
For students who do not have the Blue Cross Blue Shield North Carolina Student Insurance, as required by your insurance company, your co-payment is due at time of service.
