Third Annual Medication Drop-Off – April 26

On Saturday, April 26th from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m., Student Health Services and University Police are joining the DEA’s National Take Back Initiative to encourage the campus and community to remove expired and unused medications from their home for safe disposal.  The focus of this event is to reduce eco-toxicity caused by flushing medicines down the toilet or sink. The drop off location will be at the Student Health Center (2815 Cates Ave., Raleigh) parking lot located off Dan Allen Drive. Medications should be in their original containers when possible.

The Student Health Insurance Plan (SHIP) covers both inpatient and outpatient medical and mental health care. In addition, the plan covers some preventive care, prescription drugs and vision care. A separate, voluntary dental plan is available for purchase from Student Blue.  *Some exclusions and limitations apply both to the medical and to the dental plan.

Coverage for Services at the Student Health Center
SHIP covers 100% of all eligible expenses for services rendered at the Student Health Center. Eligible refers to those services for which exclusions by the insurance company do not apply.

*Click here for benefits and exclusions brochure.

We will file all SHIP claims when you see a provider at the Student Health Center. Copays, deductibles and coinsurance do NOT apply to services or treatment provided by us. However, payment for all services is not guaranteed (see exclusions).  If SHIP does not cover all expenses, charges will appear on your student account and you will be responsible for paying the balance due.

Coverage for Services Outside the Student Health Center
SHIP uses a Preferred Provider Organization (PPO) model that includes area providers and facilities in North Carolina. Preferred providers participate in the Blue Cross Blue Shield network. You may visit a non-network provider or medical facility but the percentage of medical expenses covered by SHIP will be lower.  When students seek medical care outside the Student Health Center they are responsible for any applicable co-pay, deductible and coinsurance.

Students can visit StudentBlue to find an in-network provider.
