Services at the UNC Student Health Center
The covered person must use the resources of the University Health Services (Student Health Center) first where treatment will be administered or a referral will be issued. Expenses incurred for medical treatment rendered outside of the UHS for which no prior approval or referral is obtained are excluded from coverage.
A UHS referral for outside care is not necessary only under the following conditions:
- Medical Emergency
- When UHS is closed
- When service is rendered at another facility during break or vacation periods
- Medical care received when the student is more than 40 miles from campus
- Medical care obtained when a student is no longer eligible to use UHS due to a change in student status
- Psychotherapy; or
- Services not offered by the UHS
Students insured with the UNC Student Health Insurance Program can pay $20 for a regular visit to the Health Services. The $20 will cover the office visit and simple care.
Covered expenses incurred at the UHS will be paid at 80% of the Maximum Allowable after the $350 per Plan year Deductible has been satisfied for care such as extensive lab work, sutures, X-Rays, etc.
