Student Health Insurance Information

Overview
  • Students are automatically enrolled in the Student Health Insurance Program with the option to opt out with verification of comparable insurance coverage.
  • Health Insurance coverage is mandated for all UTMB students.
  • Failure to maintain health insurance coverage can result in cancellation of your registration.
  • If labs or x-rays are ordered by our providers UTMB hospital will bill insurance & file the claim
  • Any Co-pays, deductibles, or fees surrounding ancillary charges are the financial responsibility of the student
  • The student tuition billed medical service fee is not health insurance coverage.
