Immunizations 


Clemson University offers a comprehensive Student Health Insurance Plan (SHIP) for which we are an in-network provider; claims are filed in-house. If you want to enroll, please follow instructions for Voluntary Students. Learn more on the SHIP website: clemson.myahpcare.com


If you already have insurance coverage, we courtesy file as an out-of-network provider for many commercial medical insurance plans. Insurance cards can be uploaded to MyHealth-e so we have your information on file. Please know that some plans will not reimburse for out-of-network services. You will be responsible for any unpaid charges.
