You are required to have health insurance regardless of the number of credit hours you are taking. The cost for this health insurance is included in your school fees.

Insurance Coverage

Primary Care

UHCL Health Center is your primary care facility with the university's insurance program. We bill insurance for services rendered within the UHCL clinic.

Referral

You must receive a referral before seeing a physician outside our clinic. You will be responsible for meeting the required deductible as stated in the policy and filing your claim with the insurance company.

Emergency

In an emergency, you may go to the nearest Urgent Care or Hospital to seek immediate medical attention without a referral. You will be responsible for meeting the required deductible as stated in the policy.
