General Information
Student Health Center Staff Members
The Student Health Center (SHC) is located at 650 Clinic Drive, in Suite 1200 of the Research Park Building III. Student Health Services are available during each semester to all students actively enrolled in the University.
The USA Student Health Center (SHC) is staffed by Physicians, including a Sports Medicine Physician, Nurse Practitioners, Physician Assistants, Registered Nurses and Licensed Practical Nurses dedicated to provide quality medical and educational services to the entire student body, when school is in session.

All currently enrolled students are eligible for treatment at the SHC because they pay an access fee of $30 each semester.  The SHC accepts certain health insurance carrier plans and will be happy to submit insurance claims electronically for the following insurance carriers: Blue Cross and Blue Shield- all states, Aetna (Saudi Arabian Cultural Missions), and UnitedHealthCare.  For all other carriers, payment will be expected at the time of service.  We will be happy to provide a detailed listing of all charges so that you can file a claim with your carrier personally.  The SHC accepts VISA, Mastercard, American Express and Discover credit cards.

All students are encouraged to obtain health insurance. A health insurance plan is available to students at USA for a nominal fee. Students are encouraged to enroll in this plan if they do not have other health insurance. However, students who do not have health insurance will be charged a reduced office visit charge at the time of service and for charges for any other medical services rendered at the SHC. We treat all students regardless of their ability to pay. Please contact the SHC Billing Office at 251-460-7151 or you may send an e-mail to studenthealth@usouthal.edu for more information.
A confidential electronic medical record is maintained on each student visiting the SHC. The SHC does not provide medical excuses for missed classes or examinations.
Any questions may be answered by calling the Student Health Center, (251) 460-7151.
