Insurance

Anytime you have an appointment at Student Health & Wellness (SHW), bring your insurance card!  You will need to provide the policyholder's date of birth and employer.  We will verify this information at EACH visit! 

If you have charges with your SHW visit, you may pay by cash, check, or charge to your U-Bill.  We can submit charges to your insurance company with a U.S. mailing address.  Any charges not covered by insurance will be placed on your U-Bill.  

If you have questions about whether SHW charges will be covered by your insurance, see Helpful Hints for Determining Your Insurance Benefits.   

You can read more about how SHW handles insurance claims and other helpful insurance information by viewing our brochure, "Insurance & Billing Questions and Answers".  You need Adobe to view this brochure, download it free by clicking the Adobe link above.
