Student Insurance FAQs

Q. I don’t need insurance, but it still shows on my bill.

It is the policy of UNMC that all full time students have health insurance.  Health insurance can be carried by a family member, spouse or the student.  If you are covered by health insurance outside of UNMC you can waive the university insurance beginning two weeks prior to the start of classes and up to two weeks after school has started.
