StudentBlue is a highly affordable, convenient medical, mental health, dental and prescription insurance plan.
The University of Nebraska has partnered with Blue Cross Blue Shield of Nebraska to offer StudentBlue in order to ensure all students have access to the medical care, mental health care, dental care and medications they need to stay healthy.
When you use the University Health Center, StudentBlue covers most medical, dental and mental health services 100%; this means Blue Cross Blue Shield will cover the entire cost for most medically-necessary services.
