How to Use Your Student Health Insurance

Your Student Insurance is a very good policy. It covers all reasonable and customary expenses related to accidents and illnesses in compliance with the state-mandated medical insurance requirement. Following is some advice to help you use your insurance.

  • Make sure to print out your insurance card online and carry with you at all times.
  • Your insurance will pay any doctor that provides a covered service due to an accident or illness. For the listing of participating doctors, please visit the Student Insurance Website. 
  •  At most locations, it will be very easy to use your insurance. A few doctors or clinics will not accept your insurance because they do not recognize it. You can ask them to telephone the number on your card to verify that they will be paid.
