Health Fee Advisory Board (HFAB)



Part of the Health Fee Advisory Board for 2010-11

Health Fee Advisory Board meeting

The Health Fee Advisory Board (HFAB) advises University Health Services-Tang Center and campus administration on matters related to the Campus Health Care Fee paid during registration.

Campus Health Care Fee
In March 2005 during the Safeguard Student Health Care Fee Referendum, students voted for a health fee that would protect and improve access to services at University Health Services (UHS)--Tang Center. The collection of the fee began in Fall 2005.

Each year, the Health Fee Advisory Board (HFAB) conducts analysis and recommends a Campus Health Care Fee level for the following year. In line with HFAB's 2013 recommendation, the following change will occur for 2013-14:

  • Fall/spring semester health fee was increased from $56.50 to $59.50, starting fall 2013
  • Summer health fee will be increased from $41 to $44.50, starting summer 2014

For more information about the fee:

Health Fee Advisory Board
HFAB reviews allocations of Campus Health Care Fee monies and recommends annually to campus health officials any change in the fee level. The committee reviews data, meets with the Executive Director and managers at the Tang Center, and provides written recommendations. HFAB is a semester-long commitment and meets on the following Tuesdays from 5-6:30pm 9/24-12/03 excluding 11/26, with an additional meeting on 10/1 from 5-7:30pm. This is a fantastic opportunity to explore emerging healthcare funding issues and learn about student healthcare and healthcare management in a campus setting.

HFAB meets the campus requirement to have student representation on a committee regarding the use of a mandatory campus-based fee.

The Health Fee Advisory Board (HFAB) consists of 7-10 students representing the ASUC, Committee on Student Fees, Graduate Assembly, Student Health Advisory Committee and at-large undergraduate and graduate students. HFAB works closely with the Student Health Advisory Committee to learn about student health trends and to formulate recommendations related to the health fee.
