Immediate and Specialty Care Clinics

If you become injured or ill while on the UNMC campus, you should call 402-559-7204 to be seen. You may be sent by Student Health to the Nebraska Medicine emergency room for treatment, if necessary.

Contact Student Health Administration via email within 48 hours of release for a referral if seen in the UNMC emergency room or an immediate care clinic outside of Student Health clinic hours.

All students are required to have medical insurance.

On the Omaha Campus

If it is after hours during the week, the weekend, or a holiday, report to the Nebraska Medicine Immediate Care Clinic to be seen for all minor illnesses or injuries.

Nebraska Medicine - Midtown Clinic

Hours of operation (to be used outside of Student Health Clinic hours):

  • Weekdays: 6 p.m. to 10 p.m.
  • Weekends: 10 a.m. to 8 p.m.

Off the Omaha Campus

If an illness or injury occurs while off campus, please go to the nearest urgent care facility for treatment, or go to the nearest emergency room for emergencies.

Hospitalization (Inpatient) Coverage

Fund B does not provide coverage for hospitalization. UNMC requires full-time students to have inpatient hospitalization health insurance. Students may purchase the university-endorsed student health insurance plan through United Healthcare Student Resources 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. You should contact Student Health at 402-559-5158 within 48 hours of the incident to obtain a referral. Failure to obtain a referral could result in the student being responsible for all charges.

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). Coverage by the student’s insurance policy may involve a deductible, applicable co-insurance and/or policy provisions/limitations. If you are covered under the Student Health Insurance, you may go to the United Health Care website to locate an in-network provider, review emergency room benefits in the Student Health Insurance Plan booklet, and file a claim online. You may also contact a United Healthcare representative at 1 (800) 351-4262 or by email at unebraskaadvocates@uhcsr.com

Dental Services

Dental services are not covered under Student Health Fund B. Check your coverage under the United Healthcare Student Resources Insurance Plan. The College of Dentistry clinics in Lincoln offers general dental services and specialty services in endodontics, oral surgery, orthodontics, pedodontics and periodontics. The College of Dentistry Clinic in the University of Nebraska Outpatient Care Center in Omaha offers services in general dentistry, pedodontics and oral and maxillofacial surgery. These services are available to the general public on an appointment basis.
