Student Health Insurance Requirement
All Students (except those enrolled in Regional Academic Center programs or Engineering Distance Education programs) are required to have health insurance.
A charge for insurance coverage is placed on your tuition bill each term.
If you do not want to purchase the coverage and want the charge removed, you must complete the online waiver process before the designated deadline each term.
To see when the deadline is for the upcoming term and how to complete the waiver visit Student Health Insurance Information.
Student Health Center - Macon Campus
The Student Health Center is the primary provider of health services for all Mercer students, regardless of insurance coverage. It is staffed by two RNs, and a physician who sees patients by appointment during scheduled clinics.
The Student Health Center provides health care for acute illnesses and injuries, allergy injections, immunizations, and health education. Some students will be referred, depending on the type of illness/injury, at the discretion of the Student Health Center staff.
Student Health Services - Atlanta Campus
Student Health is designed to provide limited health care and treatments for enrolled students who are actively attending classes at the university . Services include, but are not limited to, treatment of minor illnesses, accidents, providing medication as indicated, and issuing referrals as requested. There is no cost to student for the clinic visit. However, there may be small fees incurred if lab tests, immunizations, TB skin tests, and/or certain medications are deemed necessary.* We are currently staffed with a registered nurse, a family nurse practitioner 3 days a week (Monday, Tuesday, & Friday 10AM - 4PM) and a physician three times a month.
