The USA Student Health Center (SHC) is staffed with a team of physicians, nurse practitioners, registered nurses, licensed practical nurses and clerical personnel dedicated to providing quality medical and educational services to students.

All currently enrolled students are eligible for treatment in the SHC. The SHC accepts and processes claims for the following insurance carriers: Aetna, Blue Cross Blue Shield, Medicaid and United Healthcare. Students with coverage with any other carrier will need to pay for charges at the time of service. A claim form will be provided, so that you can file a claim with your carrier to get reimbursed for the payment. We strongly recommend that all students have health insurance. The University sponsors a United Healthcare health insurance plan that is specifically designed for USA students and is available for purchase.

The services offered in the Student Health Center are the same as in any physician’s private practice. The SHC provides treatment for a variety of medical conditions as well as physical examinations, sports medicine, immunizations, women’s health, sexual assault services and health education. Laboratory testing is offered in the clinic and by reference laboratory to assist in properly diagnosing and treating students. X-rays are also available by referral through the SHC.
