Heath coverage selected through myLSU for any fall semester will be automatically reassessed by the LSU Office of Bursar Operations on the following spring semester fee bill. If your class schedule is purged for any reason, you must ensure the insurance is reassessed on the subsequent Bursar Office bill. Dependent health coverage will not be automatically reassessed; it must be renewed manually.
Full-time students pay the fee as part of their tuition and fees. It is extremely important that you read the plan brochure to understand the specific terms and conditions, benefits, coverage limitations and policy exclusions that are described therein. Please pay special attention to the Referrals section. You are responsible for obtaining new or renewal referrals when they are required. The plan has cost containment features to keep your health costs as low as possible while maximizing your premium dollar and conserving your benefits, as appropriate. Brochures are also available at the SHC, the ISO, and on the insurance company's website.
Students enrolled in the University-sponsored insurance must use the resources of the LSU Student Health Center first, where treatment will be administered or a referral issued. In order to access the Student Health Center services, they must pay the Student Health Fee each semester.
For more information about the Student Health Center Eligibility and Fees, visit the
Eligibility Policy page and the Fees and Payment page.

Enrollment in the Vision and Dental programs should be handled online directly with the insurance company.
