Contact your insurance company about your specific coverage prior to your first appointment.
Call your insurance company via the phone number on the card, and explain you have been prescribed physical therapy and that there is a clinic on campus.
Ask what percentage or amount they will cover if you receive physical therapy at the health center. Any charges not covered by health insurance are the patient’s responsibility.
Once you have spoken with your insurance company, you can call the health center billing and insurance office at 402.472.7435 to discuss the specific costs of your visits. You can also walk in during business hours to speak to a billing and insurance representative.
All students, regardless of whether they have health insurance or what type of insurance they have, are eligible to receive physical therapy at the University Health Center.
