Student Insurance Policy (UHC)

This reasonably priced policy is designed to provide benefits for medical and dental expenses. Participation in this plan is voluntary for domestic students.
All new graduate assistants will receive insurance information. GA's are automatically billed the cost of the subsidized UHC plan to their student account.
