How does the UnitedHealthcare student insurance 'work' at the University Health Center?

  • No insurance billing is done by the University Health Center
  • Receipts are provided for any services that carry an associated cost
  • The student must file for reimbursement from UnitedHealthcare StudentResources

How does the UnitedHealthcare student insurance 'work' at other healthcare providers?

When the University Health Center is closed the UnitedHealthcare student insurance policy allows students to go to any provider they choose for treatment. Choose wisely! Your cost will vary depending on if the provider is in or out of network.

  • Physician visits within the United Healthcare PPO Network are subject to a $35 copayment, an 80/20 coinsurance cost share, and preventive care visits are usually covered at 100%
  • Physician visits not in network (to non-PPO providers) have a 60/40 coinsurance cost share, and preventive care visits have no benefits
