Insurance Information
Students are strongly encouraged to have health insurance coverage. If you are not covered by your family health insurance plan and you want coverage, FAU sponsors an accident and sickness policy for domestic and international students.  For more information, see our Insurance information or see the insurance representative in the Boca campus Student Health Services clinic on Thursdays between 1:00 p.m. and 4:00 p.m.
All international students must provide proof of acceptable insurance coverage in order to register for classes. For more information, go to our International Student information page.
Health Insurance Billing
FAU Student Health Services will bill insurance plans with in-network or out-of-network benefits. At the present time, we are in-network with the following plans:
  • Florida Blue (formerly Blue Cross & Blue Shield)
    • ID with prefix XJBH & XJWH * Some labs not covered by insurance
    • HMO plan is not currently accepted: ID with prefix XJGH
  • Cigna
    • Local Plus plan will be subject to out-of-network fees
  • United Healthcare
    • Neighborhood Health plan not accepted
For other plans not listed above, the claim will be processed as out-of-network and not verified.
Currently, the Student Health Services Dental Clinic does not accept dental insurance.
How to use insurance at SHS
Contact your insurance company to understand what services are covered and to find out if PRE-AUTHORIZATION is necessary. IT IS THE RESPONSIBILITY OF THE STUDENT/PATIENT TO OBTAIN PRE-AUTHORIZATION. The Insurance Billing Department will verify coverage with in-network carriers only before filing claims for services provided at Student Health Services. Deductibles, co-insurance and non-covered services will be charged to your FAU student account.
