Student Health Insurance Plan
- The Student Health Plan through United Healthcare Student Resources is a fully funded insurance plan with nationwide (and even international) coverage. Students who purchased this plan should be able to utilize it and find a UHC in network provider wherever they are.
- For provider lists and other information visit United Healthcare Student Help Center
- UHC will cover COVID-19 testing as ordered by a medical provider. Any treatment related to COVID-19 will be covered as any other illness would ($350 deductible, 20% coinsurance).
- UHCSR has suspended all referral requirements through 4/30/2020, meaning that students will not be required to see Habif providers for primary care during this time.
