Billing for Student Health Plans

The Mills plans are billed by semester. Charges for either the international student health plan (for all international students) or the comprehensive no-deductible Mills Student Health Plan are added to all new student accounts during the summer of each year for the fall term. For all students except international students, charges are adjusted or removed (for those who waive Mills coverage and choose other coverage) based on enrollments and waivers carried out during summer open enrollment. All students (except international students) must enroll in or waive coverage. Do not assume if you see charges on your account for a health plan that you have been enrolled in a Mills health plan (except for the international student health plan). Monitor your student account regularly. If you still see charges that you do not owe on your student account, contact the M Center at
