The Student Health Services (SHS) is an ambulatory health care facility which is available to students to care for illnesses and injuries, to promote improved mental health, and to encourage a healthy life style. With a staff of physicians, mid-level providers (contracted through St. Vincent’ Health Care) nurses, mental health counselors, and a health educator, we provide health care, immunizations, limited emergency services, mental health counseling and health education programs. SHS strives to encourage students to become responsible and knowledgeable consumers of health care.
All MSU Billings students enrolled in seven or more credits are required to have some form of health insurance. A student health insurance policy is available to MSUB students. Before registering, students will be asked to elect or waive this insurance. All students taking at least four (4) credits are eligible for health insurance. Students must elect or waive the health insurance before the 15th class day of fall or spring semesters. The premiums are paid on a semester basis, along with tuition and fees. Those students electing to take the insurance for spring semester will be covered through the summer sessions whether or not they are taking summer classes.
Note: All students are eligible to use the Student Health Services, whether or not they enroll in the student health insurance.
Insurance policy brochures are available at fee payment and at the Student Health Services office on the 2nd floor of Petro Hall.
Full information about the student health insurance program provided by the Montana University Insurance Consortium is available at www.university.bcbsmt.com.
