There is a $30 co-pay/deductible for physician visits and a $150/deductible copay for Emergency Room visits.
What Should I do if I'm Injured While Playing Intercollegiate Sports?
- Seek immediate medical treatment.
- Present your United Healthcare insurance ID card to the provider.
- Complete an injury detail form (available in Athletics). United Healthcare cannot process your claim until they receive this information.
What if I Have Other Insurance Coverage?
The student insurance plan with UHC is you primary insurance, therefore claims should be submitted to the address on your insurance ID card first.
