We strive to offer first rate, low cost health and counseling services on campus to keep our students in good health; insurance is not required to receive care. Student Assurance Services coordinates and manages the enrollment and eligibility process for UW-System schools and is available to assist those with questions.
Insurance Billing at UHCS
There are no fees for Counseling, Employee Assistance, or Wellness programs.
There is no cost to see a provider at UHCS. There is a fee for laboratory tests, medications, some procedures, and physicals, which are available at a reasonable cost. If a student must be referred off-campus for x-ray, specialized care, emergency room care or hospitalization, s/he will be charged by those providers/facilities.
Any fees incurred will be charged to the student bill. UHCS does not bill to insurance companies; however, the student may request a receipt to submit to his/her insurance company.
Please see our “Fees” page for more information.
Health Insurance Available for Students
If a student is not covered under a family insurance plan, we strongly recommend purchasing a plan; the University-endorsed health plan is an option. It is an economical illness/injury plan and protects the student from potentially catastrophic health care costs.
