Graduating Student Information
Attention May 2019 USC Graduates! Your USC student health insurance plan coverage ceases shortly after graduation. We would like to share some possible health care options available to you, if you so choose.
USC Student Health
As a student graduating from USC, we wanted to make sure you are aware of your options for healthcare after you graduate. We have also included information because your relationship to your clinical team and medical doctor is ending.
All Students – Student Health Center Access
If you have paid the student health fee of $349 for the spring 2019 semester, we will continue to provide you services at either student health center (Engemann or Eric Cohen) during our open hours through May 17, 2019.
We will be happy to transfer your medical records to a new medical provider upon receipt of a signed authorization to do so. You can do this by contacting the Health Information Management team at (213) 740-0206.
Appointments and Medications
For continued access to health center appointments and our services, please read the student health center access information above. We cannot refill medications for controlled substances, medications that you have not been seen by our clinicians for in the past 12 months, nor medications that need a clinical exam before a renewal once you graduate.
Students Covered by USC Aetna Student Insurance
If you have purchased the USC Student Health Insurance Plan for the fall 2018 semester and will not continue as a student at USC for the spring 2019 semester, your health insurance coverage will end on January 6, 2019. We recommend securing a new medical insurance policy immediately to avoid a lapse in coverage. Please go to www.HealthCare.gov to search for new plans or seek help with enrollment options in your area.
Federal Health Insurance Requirement
As stated above, your health insurance with USC will end on January 6, 2019. Please note that the federal government mandates that you have health insurance. If you don’t have coverage, you may pay fees on your federal tax return. For more information, please go to https://www.healthcare.gov/fees/fee-for-not-being-covered/.
To contact us with any questions, please call USC Student Health at (213) 740-WELL(9355).
Congratulations on your accomplishments and Fight On!
