Eligibility & Fees
Eligibility & Fees
Who is eligible for services at the Student Health Services?
Currently registered students with the Student Health Insurance Plan (SHIP):
- Students with the UC Riverside SHIP will not be charged for a visit to Student Health for injury or illness. The office visit fee, lab fees, X-rays and procedure fees will be paid 100% by SHIP. There is a prescription co-pay ranging from $5 - $25 depending on the medication, for any medications filled at the Student Health pharmacy.
- There may be fees for any services that are not a result of an injury or illness. For example, laboratory tests that are not medically indicated, but are requested by the patient.
Currently registered students with private insurance:
- Students who do not have the SHIP will be charged for visits, lab fees, X-rays, and procedures just as they would at any doctor’s office.
- The Student Health Services does not bill private insurance companies, but we do provide patients with a clear invoice which they may submit to their insurer for reimbursement.
Students from Other University of California Campuses
- UC students from other campuses pay the same fees as non-SHIP UCR students. Payment is due at the time of service.
Currently registered ESL Students:
- ESL students with the ESL health insurance plan will pay their share of their fees at the time of the visit. The remainder will be billed directly to the UCR ESL insurance plan.
Faculty and staff:
- UCR faculty and staff for services limited to flu shots and UCR-related travel medicine. (For on-the-job injuries, faculty and staff must go to one of the UCR contracted occupational medicine clinics.)
- Payment for services to faculty and staff is due in full at the time of the visit.
Methods of Payment
The Student Health Services accepts payment via
- credit card (MasterCard and Visa)
If you are a UCR student the charges can be sent to your student account.
