Establish Primary Care
SHCS providers are available as the first point-of-contact for all of your healthcare needs.
To establish a primary care provider, make an appointment at SHCS with a physician or nurse practitioner at either the Parnassus or Mission Bay clinic. Make sure to fill out your healthcare history online through the Student Portal. Once completed, your information will link securely and directly to your SHCS medical chart. For more information about SHCS primary care providers, visit Staff Profiles.
If you have a specific health concern and would like to see a specialist, you must first meet with an SHCS provider. Outside specialty care is authorized if medically necessary and pre-authorized by SHCS. For coverage details, please visit Specialty Care Coordination & Referrals.
Note: SHCS doesn’t bill insurance. Visits at SHCS are FREE for registered students and enrollees. There are no co-pays or co-insurance at Student Health. ALL students, regardless of whether or not they have waived out of the Graduate Student Health Insurance Plan (UC SHIP), have access to Student Health & Counseling Services.
