All enrolled Mason students are eligible to receive services at Student Health Services (SHS). There is no charge to be seen by a healthcare provider, there are nominal fees for medications and lab tests. SHS does not take health insurance. SHS is available to you because you are a Mason Student, not because you have purchased the student health plan.
