Student Health Insurance
UNITED HEALTHCARE STUDENT RESOURCES is the insurance provider of the UNT Health Science Center. Policy Information can be found below under “Benefits”.
All students are required to have health insurance and must obtain and maintain health insurance coverage while enrolled at the UNT Health Science Center. Students who find themselves without coverage due to age limitations or employment changes should contact Student Health Insurance to obtain insurance coverage information as soon as possible.
Please note: for returning students that choose to waive coverage in the Fall and therefore have to enroll via Qualifying Life Event, their premium will be based on a monthly rate with no pro-ration.
• New student enrollment and waiver of insurance information will be provided one month prior to classes starting via campus email and again during orientation.
