Enrollment is now open for spring/summer coverage under the university’s student health insurance plan, United Healthcare Student Resources.

Spring/summer coverage begins Jan. 1 and runs through July 31. Enrollment closes at midnight on Feb. 4.

The medical, mental health, prescription and dental plan covers most medically necessary services received at Nebraska Medicine – University Health Center at 100 percent. The plan features a $500 deductible per coverage year when visiting in-network providers. After this deductible has been met, the plan pays 80 percent for medical services in network. Prescription copays are as low as $5, and the plan offers $1,000 in dental coverage.

The plan can be used anywhere nationwide wherever United Healthcare Choice Plus is accepted.

Enrollment is open to all students enrolled in six or more credit hours in a degree-seeking program and all degree-seeking international students, regardless of credit hour level. International students are auto-enrolled. The credit hour limit does not apply to graduate assistants, degree-seeking master’s level graduate students enrolled in one or two credit hours for the purpose of completing their thesis, doctoral students enrolled in one or two credit hours for the purpose of completing their dissertation, all visiting scholars if approved by the university and all Intensive English Program students.

Students can voluntarily enroll for the spring/summer coverage period by logging into MyRed, selecting the “Profile” tab and choosing “Health Insurance.”

Once students voluntarily enroll, they will receive an email from UHCSR within 10 to 12 business days to let them know their ID card is available under their "My Account."
