Insurance & Billing
The Business Office accepts payment by cash, checks, Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Discover and the Carolina Card. Payment is expected at the time of service.
Student Health Services can file claims for services rendered with the University-sponsored health plan, AIG, and most other insurance carriers. We are not in-network for any insurance provider except the University-sponsored health plan. At this time we cannot file claims with Medicaid or Medicare.

Our on-campus pharmacy processes claims for most insurance plans.
