    FIU is committed to keeping all students healthy whether they have insurance or not. Students who pay the health fee have access to SHS to see medical providers, use the services of the Healthy Living Program, and all other programs and services covered by the health fee. For these students, the health fee will continue to subsidize the cost of office visits, routine medical exams for illness or injury, medical consultations, family planning consultations, health education, screening for high blood pressure and other conditions, thereby lowering or eliminating direct cost to students. Any services (such as laboratory testing, medications, vaccines) performed outside of these are available at nominal fees.
