Medical, Dental and UHC Pharmacy Coverage
The University of Nebraska-Lincoln partners with Aetna Student Health and Ameritas Group Dental, a division of Ameritas Life Insurance Corp., to offer medical and dental insurance plans as well as a pharmacy program available for students who attend the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. Coverage is also available for dependents. You may want to consider the student insurance policy if you have no insurance or if your current insurance policy will not:
- cover services provided at the UHC because it is out of network
- provide coverage because of a decrease in credit hours
- provide coverage because of age restrictions
Why the Healthy Option Student Plan?
- Covered UHC services paid at 100% - including most laboratory; physical therapy; radiology; specialty; counseling and psychological services; and annual exam expenses
- Eliminate worries about HMO or out of network coverages
- Includes two healthy mouth check-ups at the UHC Dental Office
- Exclusive pharmacy program for the UHC Pharmacy
