Do I have to have health insurance to be seen at Student Health Services?
No, many students who use our services do not have health insurance; however, health insurance coverage can help protect you against medical bills in the event of a serious illness. Most students with medical insurance are covered through their parent's medical coverage or a student policy. Many students are eligible to stay on their family health insurance program. Consult your insurance provider to determine if this option is available to you. Due to new insurance laws, most young adults can stay on their parent's family plan until they turn 26. Student Health Services will submit charges to your insurance provider or help you submit charges on your own, depending on your provider, to minimize your out-of-pocket costs.
Please validate with your insurance carrier if UND Student Health Services is considered to be an "in-network", participating provider. Some plans allow you to ask for an "out-of-area" network waiver form, which will reduce your out-of-pocket costs. The phone number to call and inquire is typically located on the back of your insurance card.
Students also have the option of subscribing to the Student Blue Health Insurance Policy endorsed by the North Dakota University System. This insurance covers most basic health care charges, plus emergency care. For additional information about Student Blue Health Insurance, pick up a brochure at Student Health Services. Please Note: the Student Blue plan offering will be discontinued as of 12/31/13.
The North Dakota University System (N.D.U.S.) is in the process of issuing notice to vendors to submit proposals to be considered as the "new" N.D.U.S. endorsed plan offering with coverage effective January 1, 2014. More information will be available after November 1, 2013.
Students will also have the opportunity to shop for health insurance coverage on a new, online Marketplace, where they can compare plans side-by-side and may apply for a new tax credit to lower their health insurance costs. The Marketplace opens on October 1, 2013.
