I have a Uniden SC230 and I was wondering when adding frequencies to my scanner from websites do I add both the input and output or just one of them?

You'll most likely just want the output frequencies. What you're seeing listed are repeaters. The take the signal from lower power mobile radios on the input frequency and repeat/retransmit them on the output to extend their range.

Let take this one for an example,

Ch. Display Description Output Input PL Tone Mode
1 Med 1 University Medical Center 463.0000 468.0000 114.8 Analog


I would only want to add in the Output? right?

Yes.

The input is what users transmit on and the output is what they listen to. PL tone is a subaudible tone that is transmitted along w/ the voice to help prevent interference(the radios on the system will ignore anything w/o the tone).
