Campus Health Center

Health Insurance

Due to the high cost of unexpected accidents, illness, or injury, all students are strongly encouraged to carry health insurance. Health insurance is mandatory for all international students.

I need health insurance

Under the new Affordable Care Act, many of our students, families and staff members will be eligible for either no-cost, public insurance under the newly expanded Medi-Cal program, OR heavily discounted (subsidized) private insurance purchased through a new government entity know as Covered California.

Covered CA is the new online marketplace for affordable, quality health insurance. At you can:

  • Compare health insurance plans
  • Determine how much financial assistance you may receive
  • Learn about your options, benefits and costs
  • Purchase your insurance

I already have health insurance

Regardless of your medical insurance status, as an enrolled CSUMB student you are eligible for "Basic" health services at the CHC at no additional cost. Other medical services are provided at discounted rates. The CHC is your primary care provider and can bill most PPO insurance carriers. When necessary, the CHC will refer you to a specialist to meet your medical needs.

If you have have questions about services beyond our "basic" health services provided to students, please see our Fees page.

Medication and Prescription Drugs

Unfortunately, the CHC is NOT a retail pharmacy so we are unable to sell over-the-counter medications or devices and can ONLY refill prescriptions that were originally prescribed at this clinic.
