Acute Care Services Are Now Available to UNL Employees
UNL faculty, staff and their dependents who are 19 years or older are now eligible to receive medical care for acute needs — short-term treatment for urgent medical conditions.
- The University Health Center qualifies as a Tier 1 facility under the university’s health care insurance guidelines — meaning members receive the highest level of benefits.
- Enrollment in the UNL health insurance plan is not required to receive care, but dependents must be enrolled in the same insurance plan as a faculty or staff member to be eligible for treatment.
- Care is available on a same-day basis Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Both in-person and telehealth visits are available depending on the concern.
- Appointments are required for care and must be made by calling 402.472.5000. Walk-ins are not accepted. Appointments are available on a first-come, first-served basis and can be scheduled up to 48 hours in advance.

Frequently Asked Questions
Is there a discount for faculty and staff?
Nebraska Medicine is a Tier 1 option for those enrolled in the university’s health insurance plan, which could mean lower out-of-pocket costs compared to other community options. Services are billed at the community rate. Please consult your plan for more information.
Are my children eligible to receive care?
At this time, we can only offer acute care services to children who are 19 years and older and are enrolled in your health insurance plan. However, children 16 and older are eligible to receive care at the Dental Clinic.
