Q: Can I go to UHS if I don’t have insurance or cannot afford a visit?A: UHS will work with students who do not have insurance and no one will ever be turned away because of financial difficulty. UMBC also offers health insurance plans that students and faculty can purchase so that they are covered throughout their stay at the school.
Charges for visits will be billed to your UMBC account and you will receive a bill for any labs that are requested. Charges include payment for visits (copayments if students have insurance), medications, etc. Students should be aware that it can sometimes take a few weeks for UHS bills to post to their accounts -- you should ask staff members before you leave the center how much you will be charged for your visit, and monitor your umbc billing account after visiting the health center to ensure that you don't accrue late fees.
