What is Fund B?

Fund B is the term used to refer to the fund that is paid into by students and by which certain health care benefits are paid. It is not major medical insurance. It covers certain health benefits and excludes others (see links above). Most services are handled during visits to the Student Health Clinic, which is part of the Family Medicine Clinic at UNMC.

All UNMC STUDENTS are automatically enrolled in Student Health Fund B during registration if taking:

  •          7 or more hours as an undergraduate student;
  •          4 or more as a graduate student (all PhD candidates are included);
  •          4 or more hours during Summer Sessions (both undergraduate and graduate students)

Fund B can be purchased by any part-time students (taking less than 5 hours) or dependents of students with Fund B. Contact Finance Office/Cashier for more information. 

Fund B coverage for Student Health begins at 12:01 a.m. on the first day of each semester for which the fee covers. Fund B coverage ceases for UNMC students at 11:59 p.m. on a student’s termination date, graduation date, or the last day of the semester (for continuing students).

Fund B is mandated by the Chancellor and is approved by the Board of Regents to support Student Health operations.


Students NOT ENROLLED in classes during the summer session (June 1 until the first day of classes in the fall), may pay a fee to the Finance Office/Cashier prior to June 1 to utilize the services of the Student Health Clinic .
