Health Fee and Insurance

Health and Well-being at SUNY Oswego Flyer (PDF)

Services and programs offered at Health Services are supported by the mandatory health fee, which is paid as part of the college bill. Part-time enrolled students who are not taking classes during the summer or winter session and wish to continue to access services provided through the Health Fee will be charged a fee for usage. Students pay the health fee on a credit hour basis.

The Mary Walker health fee is a mandatory fee charged to all students (In-person, on the Syracuse campus, and online students) for access to services provided and to cover the costs associated with operating health services, counseling services and health promotion and education. The Fee funds both in-person and remote programs. Primary health care services and counseling services are offered in the Mary Walker complex, as well as through telemedicine and telecounseling platforms. The fee is not a user fee.

Student Health Insurance

It is mandatory that all SUNY Oswego students have adequate health insurance. The student bill will reflect a charge for the college-sanctioned accident and sickness policy. This charge may be waived by providing proof of adequate insurance by submitting a copy of the insurance card and completing the insurance waiver. This waiver is to be sent to Auxiliary Services. Before waiving the college policy, please be sure that your insurance policy will cover outpatient medical charges in this community (i.e. labs, x-rays, medical imaging, referrals to specialists). 

For additional information contact Auxiliary Services 315.312.2107 or visit Health Insurance information


The laboratory (Lab Alliance of CNY in most cases) will bill either the insurance company or the patient directly. If we have insurance information at the time of the visit, we will send it to the lab on behalf of the patient. It is the responsibility of the patient to provide insurance information, and to know the financial aspects of their own policy. Staff at the Health Services are not responsible for "co-pays," and can't guarantee if a test is covered.

If you have any questions regarding bills from Lab Alliance please call 315.461.3008.

Medical insurance is mandatory for all international students.
