The student health insurance plan is not needed to access care at the Student Health Center. There will be a nominal front door fee assessed to the student for each visit; additional charges may apply in some instances.

Insurance Billing

Student Health Services does not submit insurance claims for the student in most instances. However, Student Health Services will submit claims on behalf of students under the following circumstances:

  • Students injured in a motor vehicle accident to the motor vehicle plan only.
  • Students injured under workers compensation to the worker's compensation carrier only.
  • Immunizations and prescription medications only for those students enrolled in the Aetna Student Health Insurance plan.

Students are responsible for any unpaid balances.

Students may obtain a statement from SIU Student Health Services or print statements from their bursar account to submit their own claims as needed for all other circumstances. Reimbursement will depend on individual plan benefits. The student should contact their insurance carrier for questions regarding insurance benefits.
