New Student Onboarding

The University has contracted with the United Healthcare Student Resources Insurance Company to provide accident/illness insurance coverage. The plan also provides for outpatient surgery, dental, and prescription coverage. Students may participate in the University-sponsored plan thru United Healthcare Student Resources, or they may have their own plan through a parent, spouse, employer, or self.

Refer to this link for the cost of the insurance per semester, as well as the coverage effective date, based on your program: https://www.uhcsr.com/unmc.

The cost of the United Healthcare Student Insurance is automatically billed each fall and spring semester on the full-time student’s tuition statement/bill, for full time students. Part time students may also enroll for the particular semester in the United Student Insurance Program by enrolling on the United Healthcare Insurance website and must do so within the first two weeks of each semester at: https://www.uhcsr.com/unmc.

Therefore, if students do not wish to participate in the University plan through United Healthcare, they must file a Waiver verifying alternate insurance. 

Insurance Waiver Criteria- domestic students

Insurance Waiver Criteria- international students

NOTE:  Waivers can be completed approximately 14 days before the start of the semester’s classes but MUST BE FILED by the deadline of 14 days following the first day of classes. And please note that students who have an approved fall semester waiver do not need to file another waiver for the following spring semester. 

All questions regarding your insurance benefits or your planned waiver of the student insurance plan, contact Devin Schleicher at 402-559-5328.
