Policy reminders from University Health Services


The John C. Longest Student Health Center is a full-service healthcare facility located at 360 Hardy Road on the Starkville campus.

University Health Services offers these reminders for students, faculty and staff at Mississippi State:

-- Effective January 2016, State Health Plan (AHS) patients will have a $25.00 copay for Office Visit charges.

-- If you are interested in joining the MSU Health Center portal, you need to contact us at 662-325-7539. This will initiate an invite to join.

-- The appointment phone number 662-325-7539. Calling for an appointment will enhance your chances being seen promptly.

-- SHC does not issue excuses for missing class.

-- Gated lot is only for patients with health center business. Violators will be ticketed.

-- A charge of $25 will be assessed to your account if you miss an appointment. Fifteen minutes late constitutes a missed appointment.

-- Patient privacy is a priority. Family and guests accompanying patients may wait in the lobby and will be called upon if needed by the clinical staff.

-- Enrolled students are not charged an office visit charge due to the health fee portion of tuition and fees. Please note: Distance only students do not pay a health fee and can be seen at SHC, but will be charged for office visits charges.

-- If you would like SHC to file your charges to health insurance, please provide your insurance card to the staff. Charges and credits from insurance payments will go to your student account at the end of each month.

-- Your pharmacy card may be different than medical insurance card.

-- Prescriptions transferred from other pharmacies will require one day notice.
