Billing & Patient Accounts
NYU SHC will bill the student’s health insurance carrier for charges incurred at SHC. If the insurance plan does not cover the service or does not pay the entire bill, the student is responsible for the bill.
Students are billed for unpaid balances on a monthly basis. However, if accounts are not settled in a timely manner, the unpaid balance is transferred to the Bursar’s office to be added to the student’s tuition account.
Please review our January 2022 announcement about billing at the SHC.
SHC is in-network with the following plans:
- Basic, Comprehensive & Tandon
- NYU Abu Dhabi, NYU Shanghai, and NYU Study Away
- Choice, Choice Plus, Select, Select Plus, Oxford Freedom, Liberty, Options, Indemnity
For all other insurance plans, the SHC is out of network.
Paying Your Bill
At the time of service
SHC accepts cash, personal check, credit/debit cards at the time of service.
After time of service
To settle your bill after time of service, payment can be remitted by mail with a personal check, money order, or credit card. You may also make payment over the phone by providing your credit card details or by visiting SHC’s Suite 346.
Please contact us if you have any questions, especially:
- if there appears to be an error in your statement;

We're available Monday-Friday, 9am–5pm.
