Student Health Insurance
To protect your health and financial stability, the University of
Oregon recommends that all students have health insurance to help cover
unexpected medical expenses that may arise.
Included in the tuition bill is a mandatory student health fee
that all registered students must pay. The fee allows registered
students to use all University Health Center services. The student health fee is not
health insurance and does not cover charges for medical services
received at the Health Center or from health providers in the community.
Students are not required to purchase the UO sponsored health insurance plan to be seen at the Health Center.

Private Health Insurance
The University Health Center will directly bill these qualifying insurance plans:
• Oregon Health Plan (OHP)
• UO Student Health Insurance Plans
• GTFF-PacificSource Insurance Plan
If you have a qualifying insurance plan, please download, fill, sign, and deliver the insurance registration form to the Insurance Desk on the first floor of the Health Center when you arrive on campus (or at least 30 minutes before an appointment).
While we might not be able to bill your insurance, please bring your health insurance card
with you to your appointment. We will keep your card on record in the event that you are referred to an outside provider who bills your insurance plan.
If you have a non-qualifying health insurance plan, check with
your insurance company prior to your visit to verify that you will be
reimbursed for services rendered at the Health Center. Upon request, we will
print an insurance statement with specific treatment billing codes for you to
submit to your private insurance company. It is
your responsibility to submit this form.
Your insurance company will
independently process your claim per the terms and conditions of your plan.
request an insurance statement in person with your photo ID at the main reception
desk at least one week after the date of service. Requests can also be made by mail or fax, signed and dated by you, along
with your printed name, student ID number and complete mailing address.
