Yes. Even though Student Health Services will meet many student health care needs, it does not cover the cost of emergency or specialized care, hospitalization, out-patient diagnostic tests and surgery. Services will be provided to students regardless of their health insurance status.
Columbus State University offers a voluntary accident and illness policy to help cover these unexpected and potentially expensive costs. UnitedHealthcare is the administrator and underwriter for the Student Health Accident and Insurance Plan.

Documentation of a visit to Student Health Services (nurse or physician) is available the day of the visit. However, the documentation statement provided does not excuse the student from class.
Remember, class requirements and attendance are administrative concerns between a faculty member and student.
