Fees

The charts below outline the cost per year for Student Health Service (SHS) and the Columbia University Student Health Insurance Plan annual policy.  Full time students and those on the Columbia Univeristy Student Health Insurance Plan are required to pay the Health & Related Services Fee regardless of the physical location of the student.  Student Health Service, directly or in conjunction with our global partners, will continue to provide our full range of services to students, in person or via virtual means, across all 50 US states as well as for our students located outside of the United States.  There is no option to waive the fee.  

2020-2021 Student Health Service Costs

Payment of the Health and Related Service fee covers the cost of all routine services provided in SHS, including primary care visits, mental health services, and wellness and health promotion services.  Separate charges may be applied (per your insurance benefits) for laboratory tests, imaging procedures, prescription drugs, and care received outside of SHS.
