All enrolled students who pay the Student Health Fee and Counseling Fee are eligible to access care at the CSU Health Network, regardless of their insurance status. Students are not required to be enrolled in the CSU Student Insurance Plan in order to access care at the CSU Health Network.
The CSU Health Network is funded through two distinct student fees: the Student Health Fee and the Counseling Fee. Students registered for six or more resident instruction credit hours are automatically assessed the Student Health Fee and Counseling Fee. Students registered for five or fewer resident instruction credit hours can elect to pay the Student Health Fee and the Counseling Fee in order to access services at the CSU Health Network.
Note: If you are enrolled in the CSU Student Insurance Plan, you must pay the student health fee. If you are a full-time student taking six or more credits, this fee will be included in your general fees. If you are taking fewer than six credits, this fee will be applied separately to your student account after the add/drop date.
The semester Student Health Fee is $142.00, the summer Student Health Fee is $97.00, and the semester Counseling Fee is $38.88. The summer Counseling Fee is $27.00.
The Student Health Fee allows unlimited office visits with primary care staff physicians/nurse practitioners and access to the CSU Health Network multi-disciplinary clinics. The Counseling Fee provides an initial visit with counseling staff and up to five subsequest visits. These fees also allow for services to be provided at subsidized rates, significantly reducing the cost for many ancillary services.
Part-time students, students of the Division of Continuing Education, Guest Students, and Continuing Registration students may choose to pay the Student Health Fee and Counseling Fee on a semester basis or pay for services as they are received at CSU Health Network. Spouses or domestic partners and children of students may pay the Student Health Fee on a semester basis or pay for medical services as they are received, but are not eligible to utilize the newly integrated counseling and prevention services.
The Student Health Fee and Counseling Fee allow students to access service through the following time periods:
Payment of fall fees allows access beginning on the first day of fall classes and ending the day before spring classes.
Payment of spring fees allows access beginning on the first day of spring classes and ending the day before the 8-week summer term begins.
For students not covered by the prior spring fees, summer coverage period begins on the first day of summer classes. For students covered by the prior spring fees, the summer coverage begins on the first day of the 8-week summer term.
Summer fee coverage ends the day before fall classes begin.
For fall and spring semesters only: There is a "flex week" which is the week prior to the beginning of those terms where any student who is enrolled for the coming semester is treated as though they have paid the semester fees.
CSU students who graduate or leave the university may pay the Student Health Fee, or pay fee-for-service for each visit, to access care from the CSU Health Network Medical and Psychiatric Services for one additional semester. Currently, access to Counseling Services at the CSU Health Network is not available after graduating or leaving the university.
While the health fee covers the costs associated with unlimited office visits with primary care staff physicians/nurse practitioners and access to the CSU Health Network multi-disciplinary clinics, the CSU Health Network does assess additional charges for medications, supplies and procedures used to diagnose and treat illnesses and injuries. These include, but are not limited to:
Additional charges are also assessed at reduced rates on treatment provided at CSU Health Network specialty clinics including Allergy/Asthma, Optometry, Orthopedic/Sports Medicine, Dental, Dermatology and Physical Therapy

Payment for services not covered by the health fee may be made at the time of treatment with cash, check, or credit card; billed to your student account; or submitted to the CSU Health Insurance Plan if enrolled in that program. If you have your own insurance, you will be provided documentation to submit to your insurance company.
