Student Health Insurance
As we continue to focus and prioritize the health and well-being of our students, faculty, and staff, all communications have moved to an electronic format until further notice.
During this time, please allow 48-72 business hours for your requests to be processed.
Please email our office, and we will schedule a virtual appointment. You will receive an email with a link to the virtual platform Zoom (a Zoom account is not required to participate). We will continue to answer all of your questions and concerns via email. Please do not hesitate to contact us at email@example.com.
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.
