IUD Patient Information

Considering an IUD

  1. If you decide to have an IUD placed, please call the University Health Center at 402-472-7477 to schedule your appointment.

  2. It is your responsibility to check with your insurance regarding insurance coverage for an IUD insertion. (StudentBlue covers an IUD at 100%). If the IUD service is not paid by your insurance, you will be responsible for all charges.

    Questions to ask your insurance company:
    • Is the IUD device/procedure covered?
    • Is the University Health Center a preferred provider or do I need to go elsewhere?
    • How much do I have to pay?
    • Ask your insurance to fax a copy of coverage to the University Health Center (Fax #: 402-472-4593).
  3. If you have not had STD testing within the last 6 months, STD testing will be done at appointment time (at additional charge).

  4. Things to remember before your appointment:

    1. Please eat something before you come. You can take three to four (200 mg) ibuprofen (with food) 30-60 minutes before appointment.
    2. Abstinence (have had no sexual intercourse) is REQUIRED 7 days prior to your appointment. A urine pregnancy test will be done the day of your IUD insertion (at additional charge) so please check in 10-15 minutes prior to your appointment.
    3. Continue your current birth control method prior to IUD insertion.
    4. IUD's do not provide protection from sexually transmitted infections (STI's). Condoms should be used.
