NC State Student Health Services (SHS) has begun preparations in the unlikely event students, staff or faculty returning from the affected regions of West Africa display symptoms consistent with the Ebola Hemorrhagic Fever. SHS is coordinating with the Office of International Affairs and the Office of International Services to identify anyone who may have traveled to or are traveling from Ebola- affected regions, which includes Guinea, Liberia, Nigeria and Sierra Leone. SHS is closely monitoring Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and World Health Organization (WHO) communications, as well as local health departments, and will inform the campus community when new information becomes available.
Come relax with us! Massages for students, faculty and staff are offered by appointment Tuesdays & Wednesdays 8:30 a.m. -12:30 p.m. and Thursdays 10 a.m. – 2 p.m. with licensed massage therapists. Please call 919-513-3260 for details and to schedule your appointment today. Sessions are 25 or 50 minutes and packages are available.

We are renovating space to better meet the needs of students and improve the patient experience. During the summer there will be several projects that will generate dust and noise. Please let us know if there are special concerns during your visit so we can assist in making the visit more comfortable. Thank you for your understanding and patience.
Eligible students who wish to enroll in Student Blue coverage for Fall 2014 are encouraged to submit an enrollment request no later than September 10, 2014 to ensure timely receipt of insurance ID cards. Students who are enrolled by default will not receive ID cards until after the deadline has passed. Students are automatically charged for Student Blue coverage.
Need to waive Student Blue coverage?
+ If you have creditable health insurance coverage, you must waive the Student Blue coverage and provide proof of your coverage each university semester. The charge will then be removed.

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.
To continue to ensure we are providing the best care to the NC State community, beginning August 16th Student Health Services will charge a $25 no show fee for all appointments not cancelled or rescheduled in advance. Students will be reminded of this charge when making appointments and in appointment reminders.
