Hospitalization (Inpatient) Coverage
Fund B does not provide coverage for hospitalization. UNMC Center requires full-time students to have inpatient hospitalization health insurance. Students may purchase the University endorsed student health insurance plan through United Healthcare Student Recourses or purchase a private plan through an independent agency that is equivocal to the University endorsed student health insurance plan.
Illness or Injury Away from the UNMC Campus
Students outside a 50 mile radius for academic purposes requiring urgent/emergent care may be seen at an area outpatient facility. Fund B will cover the office visit.

Services not listed above as provided by Fund B will need to be billed to your major medical insurance (UNMC Student Health Insurance or other personal insurance).
