The Insurance Billing Office at University Health Services is located on the 5th Floor in Business Services. The office is staffed with experienced and dedicated professionals who will file your medical claims. They communicate with patients and insurance companies to ensure your claims are processed correctly and in a timely manner.

Just because your insurance plan is in-network, doesn’t mean that all services will be covered or paid in full by the insurance company. You still may be responsible for co-pays, co-insurance and deductibles. If your insurance plan is out-of-network, we will still file your claim to the insurance company. However, most out-of-network plans pay less or none of the costs of your services. All insurance plans are different, so call your insurance company to verify benefits prior to your appointment. Their number is typically located on the back of your insurance card.
How Will I Be Billed?
Deductibles, Co-pays, Co-insurance, and charges not covered by your insurance plan will be billed to your Student Central Account after the insurance company has paid its share. This process may take from 30 to 90 days or more. Details on how you can pay these charges are located here: http://fees.fsu.edu.
How Do I Use My Insurance?
How your healthcare is paid for depends on whether you have health insurance and the type of coverage you have. The Insurance Billing Department will file insurance claims for services provided at the Health Center. To help us provide the best service possible, prior to your appointment, call your insurance company to verify your benefits. Their number is typically located on the back of your insurance card.
