General Info / Filing a Claim

The Student Health Center on campus offers quality medical care at a very low cost and is available to all registered students and their spouses. It is not necessary to have insurance to use the facility's services.

For students that do have health insurance coverage, the SHC has an Insurance Billing Office to assist with questions and the filing of claims. This office is located in Room 134 on the main floor of the SHC building and can be reached by dialing 225-578-3304, faxing 225-578-0805, or emailing

Please present your health insurance card to the sign-in desk or cashier desk staff so we may save it to your record. At that point, all charged services, such as lab work and x-rays, will be automatically filed to your plan.

Please note that the SHC is currently considered “out-of-network” for all off-campus private insurance companies and claims are filed as a courtesy. We cannot guarantee that your health plan will cover SHC charges.
