SFCM Students at Ocean Beach

Primary Care with Carbon Health

All collegiate students receive a membership with Carbon Health. Carbon Health provides high-quality, patient-centered primary and urgent care services with same-day/next-day appointments. Carbon Health accepts the SFCM Student Health Insurance Plan through UnitedHealthcare as well as many other national insurers. Students also have access to 24/7/365 virtual care by phone, email, and video conference, a mobile app for appointment scheduling, prescription refills, and referrals to a network of specialists. Carbon Health also offers fully comprehensive healthcare services for Mental Health, Women’s Health, LGBT Health, COVID Care and more. 

Student Health Insurance Plan

SFCM has selected Gallagher Student Health to administer the Student Health Insurance Plan through UnitedHealthcare. Coverage begins on August 1 of each academic year (January 1 for students starting in the spring semester) and ends July 31.

All full-time collegiate students are required to have medical insurance. SFCM urges all students (and parents / legal guardians, if applicable) to thoroughly compare health insurance options. All domestic students who are not covered under a comparable US-issued health insurance policy must purchase health insurance offered through SFCM. All international students must purchase health insurance offered through SFCM. Students who take a leave of absence may be ineligible to continue their health insurance policy through SFCM. International students enrolled in Optional Practical Training (OPT) are eligible, but not required, to enroll.

Students who opt-out of the SFCM Student Health Insurance Plan are encouraged to ensure that their individual plan has sufficient coverage and providers in San Francisco. SFCM encourages every student to select a primary care doctor in the San Francisco area, especially if the student has a medical condition that requires routine and regular care.

Students who do not complete the online health insurance enrollment/waiver process will have the SFCM Student Health Insurance Plan charge placed on their term bill.
