Students are not required to have insurance to utilize SHS services. SHS will file most health insurance as a courtesy for services provided. SHS is unable to file with Medicaid, CHIPS, and other Medicaid Products (e.g. Superior, Molina, Community Health, Texas Women’s, STAR, Cooks Children, etc.).
A copy of the insurance card, front and back, will be required. SHS does not contract with insurance companies, Managed Care Networks, or government insurance programs. Any balances not paid by the student’s insurance carrier will be transferred to the student’s fee account at Student Business Services. A verification of benefits does not guarantee payment.
SHS cannot file pharmacy claims unless the student is covered under one of the TAMU Sponsored Plans.
To discuss a student’s financial account information or medical information, a SHS Medical Records Release form will be required.
Insurance Policies Available
International, F1, and J1 students are required to have health insurance as well as evacuation and repatriation coverage. International Student Services (ISS) is responsible for verification. For more information, please visit the Texas A&M International Student webpage.
