Summer Health Fee

Fee = $110

Staying in Madison this summer? Your student status changes after the semester ends.

The Summer Health Fee provides access to UHS’s usual services—including medical and mental health care—when classes are not in session during the summer.

Any student enrolled in the Spring 2020 semester is eligible to pay the Summer Health Fee, including recent graduates.

If you are taking classes over the summer, the Summer Health Fee is included in your tuition. If you have the Student Health Insurance Plan (SHIP), the summer fee is included in your health insurance. Guest students are not eligible to use UHS because they do not pay segregated fees during the academic year.

 

UHS services become available to all students enrolled for the Fall semester on August 15, 2019 (for fall semester 2019 and August 15, 2020 for fall semester 2020).

Why do I need health insurance during the summer?

  • On-campus resources if you get sick.
  • Access to clinics such as Mental Health, Sexual Health, Women’s Health.
  • Continuation of any services you use during the semester.

You can purchase the Summer Health Fee beginning May 4. The Budget and Finance office is currently closed and unavailable to take in-person payment due to COVID-19. Please pay online with this link.  Staff are working remotely but are frequently checking for any voicemails left on our main phone (608-890-1991).  For the quickest response, we highly encourage you to email billing@uhs.wisc.edu and staff will respond during regular business hours from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday.

Costs

There are charges for some UHS services including most immunizations (except free flu shots), physical therapy appointments, orthopedic equipment such as splints and braces, and third-party physicals, and certain lab work and tests connected with those physicals. UHS will bill students if payment is not made at time of service.

Short term loans may be sought by students when an unexpected life event or circumstance takes place that causes financial hardship.

SHIP members: Many immunizations and other services listed below may be fully covered for SHIP members and spouses/partners under the Student Health Insurance Plan.

Prescription Medications

Students are responsible for charges for prescription medications at the pharmacy of their choice.

Referrals

When students require advanced diagnostic tests, certain types of mental health treatment, or other specialty care, UHS will referral to an appropriate provider in the community. Students are responsible for all charges for such specialty care, which may qualify for full or partial coverage or reimbursement under their health insurance plans. Students are responsible for contacting their insurance carriers to determine which providers may be covered under their plans.

Health insurance reimbursement

Depending on your insurance plan, you may be able to receive full or partial reimbursement for payments you have made to UHS by submitting a copy of your UHS Statement of Service to your insurance company. You are responsible for contacting your insurance carrier to determine whether UHS services are eligible for full or partial reimbursement under your plan. If you intend to seek reimbursement, we recommend you contact your insurance provider before you receive the service at UHS to ask if it will be covered.
