Payment for Services

  • Health Services is in-network with most major insurance plans as listed below and will file a claim to any insurance plan. If you are uninsured or you do not want us to file your insurance plan, you will be responsible for paying the self-pay rates.
  • If your plan requires you to select a Primary Care Provider, you will need to select one of our providers to ensure reimbursement. We will collect all deductibles, copays, and coinsurance per the plan benefits. The balance owed will be placed on the student’s WINGS account.
  • Please bring your insurance card or a hard copy of your card (front and back) at each visit.
  • Payment is due at the time of service. We accept cash, check, Eaglexpress or credit card (American Express, Master Card, VISA, Discover).
  • Non-payment on an account will result in a hold being placed on the student’s WINGS account and will prohibit registration, readmission and obtaining transcripts. The hold will be removed when the account is paid in full.
  • Laboratory Testing that cannot be provided in-house is provided by an outside lab who will bill each student’s insurance plan. The outside lab will bill the student for any unpaid balance based on the plan benefits. If the student is uninsured, Health Services will charge the self-pay rate for the services provided by the outside lab.
  • Some students may have medical conditions that require a referral to other health care providers or specialists for consultation or treatment. All expenses related to the medical services of referred providers are the responsibility of the student.
  • For additional questions concerning our fee schedule please email us at health@georgiasouthern.edu.

Insurance Partners:

**Although we are in-network with the insurance plans below, your plan may not pay for your services because your specific plan does not recognize us as in-network. It is your responsibility to know if one of our providers is in-network or not. If we are not in-network and you are seen here, you will be responsible for all charges.

 

***We are not in network with CareSource, KAISER, PEACHSTATE and PEACHSTATE AMBETTER***

Students with these insurance plans will be expected to pay the self-pay rates for all services provided.
