Health fee & insurance

Student Health Fee

This fee automatically appears on your semester bill if you are taking more than six credit hours.
If you have fewer hours, you must pay the fee to receive services.

The fee covers consultations with medical and mental health providers as well as health
promotion and wellness programs. It is not insurance.

Services/procedures not covered by the pre-paid health fee include, but are not limited to:

  • casting/splinting
  • stitches
  • lab tests
  • costs associated with referral appointments

Charges not covered by the fee may be paid by cash, check, credit card or they will be
automatically billed to your student account.

The health fee is available for spouses; however, dependent children are not eligible to use the Health Center. Call (573) 882-9116 for more information.

It is important for you to understand that the health fee is not insurance. Sometimes you may require testing or procedures that are not covered by the health fee.

However, we are happy to file insurance claims for any carrier except Medicare or Medicaid. We are a participating provider with the University-sponsored program, Aetna Student Health. See directions below on how to print your insurance card. All other carriers consider us out of network and may limit or prohibit payment.

  • It is the student’s responsibility to contact the insurance carrier concerning coverage of medical care while away from home.
  • Insurance is required for all international students, regardless of the number of credit hours.
  • Insurance is strongly recommended for domestic students.
  • Insurance may help pay for charges incurred at urgent care, emergency room and hospitalization.

We've also created a video about Aetna Student insurance for MU International Students. Take a look and if you still have questions, contact our insurance department at (573) 882-9107 or (573) 884-1036 or by email.
