Health Services Eligibility and Costs
All UMD students are eligible to use Health Services. Counseling services are available to UMD students at no cost. The student service fee (SSF) covers office visits with medical providers for students taking six or more credits. Some services such as x-rays, lab tests, immunizations and injections, minor surgery and special procedures do have charges (see Billable Services list below) that are billed to insurance. Students taking less than six credits (less than three credits during the summer) are eligible to use Health Services by paying a one-time-per-semester fee, which covers office visits. Co-pays and deductibles may apply as determined by the insurance company; students are responsible for these fees.
Non-UMD Students (college aged students from surrounding colleges such as, College of St. Scholastica, University of Wisconsin – Superior, Lake Superior College, the University of Minnesota, etc.) are eligible to use medical providers at Health Services, however, charges apply for services rendered by any provider. Chargeable services include office visits, x-rays, lab tests, minor surgery, and special procedures. Non-UMD students can have their charges billed to insurance. Non-UMD students are not eligible to use counseling services at Health Services.

Billing Process and Policies

There are many reasons why you may receive a bill from Health Services:
- We may need updated or additional insurance information from you.
