Campus Health Fee

The Campus Health Fee is a mandatory fee that all degree-seeking students pay through fees/tuition each term. All students and Postdoctoral fellows who pay the current term Campus Health Fee can use Campus Health. (Please note that all UNC affiliated persons are welcome to use Campus Health Pharmacy and Student Stores Pharmacy regardless of whether they pay the health fee.)

This charge appears on your University account as FEE Student Health. The Campus Health Fee for 2020-2021 is $200.08 per term.

For most services covered by the Campus Health Fee, students’ health insurance is not billed. This practice benefits students because any copay or coinsurance amount does not apply as it would if their insurance had been billed. This approach ensures that cost is not a barrier to access for students requiring these medical and mental health services.
