Health Insurance

Health InsuranceAccess to the health center is free to all regularly enrolled Cal State San Marcos students. There are no co-pays for medical appointments, except visits with a psychiatrist.

At SHCS, we only provide basic wellness  care. Basic visits with a medical provider includes: colds, flu, sore throats, sexually transmitted disease testing, counseling, and lab work. PAP smears, psychiatry services and non-routine lab tests require a small fee.  

You do not need health insurance to utilize Student Health and Counseling Services. However, supplemental health insurance is strongly recommended.

Extended student health insurance for international students/ALCI (non US Citizens) is offered by Academic HealthCare. The plan covers medical needs beyond the scope of services provided by Student Health and Counseling Services. Services beyond SHCS scope of care includes: referrals to a specialist, visits to the emergency room or urgent care centers. Enroll online at Academic HealthCare website for the CSU-sponsored health insurance or receive additional informatoin. We strongly urge you to maintain health insurance.
