Student Health Insurance

All full-time students are automatically enrolled in the College’s Student Injury and Sickness Insurance Plan through UnitedHealthcare at the time of enrollment unless proof of comparable coverage is furnished.

FSC’s healthcare plan provides injury coverage along with partial protection from the expenses incurred from costly illnesses requiring hospital care, surgical treatment, or physician’s services.

Students who choose to participate in the College coverage will be charged the annual premium cost of $1,422.00 on their fall bill.

For more information regarding the Student Injury and Sickness Insurance plans, please visit UnitedHealthcare.  Please direct billing questions to the Business Office at 863.680-4154.
