Insurance Information

All students are required to obtain adequate health insurance coverage (few exemptions apply). To assist students in obtaining coverage, the University-sponsored Student Health Insurance Plan by United Healthcare is designed to be used in conjunction with the services of the Student Health Service and Counseling Center. 

Domestic students with adequate coverage of their own can waive the University-sponsored plan, however, international students are required to enroll in the University-sponsored plan (unless being sponsored by an embassy).

  • Included with Student Health Insurance Plan

    As required by law, dental and vision coverage is included in the University-sponsored insurance plan for enrollees under age 19. Additionally, all enrollees are eligible for an annual routine eye exam from a United Healthcare participating optometrist (subject to co-payment; does not include eyewear). Search for a provider at MyUHC.com.

  • Combined Dental/Vision Plan

    For increased coverage and benefits, combined dental and vision insurance is offered by United Healthcare. Enrollment in the University-sponsored health insurance plan is not required to purchase this dental/vision coverage, however, coverage for dependents is only available to those who are enrolled in both the University-sponsored health insurance plan and the dental/vision plan.
