Student Health Insurance

If you are a registered undergraduate student taking 12 or more credit hours or a registered international student with an F-1 or J-1 visa, you are automatically enrolled in United Healthcare Student Insurance program. Domestic graduate students may purchase the student health insurance through United Healthcare Student Resources. Medical Services is not contracted to provide services under any other health insurance policy other than the student health insurance. For services that are not covered by student health insurance, Medical Services charges a reasonable fee at the time of visit.

Full-time undergraduate and international students:

Full-time undergraduate and all international students pay a mandatory student health fee each semester. This provides for full use of the Dickey Health and Wellness Center, which includes health, counseling and wellness services.
Preferred Providers: The Preferred Provider Network for this plan is UnitedHealth Choice Plus. Preferred Providers can be found using the following link: UHC Choice Plus.
The student health fee also includes a premium paid for a student injury and sickness insurance plan through United HealthCare Student Resources. The deductible will be waived and benefits will be paid at 100 percent for covered medical expenses incurred when treatment is rendered at the student Health Center for the following services: prescription drugs after a $10 copay for generic drugs and a $15 copay for brand name drugs, up to a 31-day supply maximum per prescription. Off campus benefits are not fully covered and require out of pocket payment.
Service provided off-campus at a preferred provider is covered under the following conditions:
  • First $2,500 in claims: $2,500 per insured person, per policy year utilizing preferred providers. The deductible will not be applied until the company has paid $2,500 in covered medical expenses.  
  • After $2,500 in claims have been paid by the company: Insurance pays covered benefits at 80 percent and student pays 20 percent
  • After $2,500 deductible is met: Insurance pays covered benefits at 100 percent.
  • Diagnostics (X-rays, labs, etc.) ARE subject to the above out-of-pocket costs.
  • ER expenses: $100 copay (the copay maybe waived if admitted to the hospital) and subject to the above out-of-pocket costs.
  • Out-of Pocket Maximum: After the out-of pocket maximum has been satisfied, covered medical expenses will be paid at 100 percent for the remainder of the policy year subject to any applicable benefit maximums. Refer to the plan certificate for details about how the out-of pocket maximum applies.

There are also conditions that are EXCLUDED by the policy. A list of these exclusions can be found in the full policy at

    It is not advised to drop any existing private insurance policy you have in addition to the school insurance policy. The student policy can be used in conjunction with other insurance policies to provide better coverage with less out of pocket costs based on policy guidelines.

      Schedule a student medical appointment: (813) 253-6250

      Certain types of appointments are available only on certain days. Services are provided on an appointment basis, but walk-ins will be evaluated and given appointments or seen immediately based on the urgency of their condition.

      Students should use the Student Health Portal to complete medical visit forms prior to their appointment. This allows the student to complete forms at their convenience, accurately and in privacy, also shortening their time in the Health and Wellness Center lobby where they may be exposed to other illnesses.

      Arrive 15 minutes prior to your scheduled appointment time. This allows you to have time to fill out any additional paperwork and will maximize the amount of time you are able to spend with your medical provider. If you arrive at your appointment time more than 5 minutes late, you will be rescheduled for another time.

      No-show Fees 

      To increase appointment slots available, students who cannot make their appointment as scheduled need to call and reschedule. A no show fee will be charged if you do not cancel/reschedule as indicated below:

      • Counseling Appointments: $25 fee if not cancelled a minimum of 24 hours before appointment time.
      • Women's Health Appointments: $25 fee if not cancelled a minimum of two hours before appointment time.
      • Any Other Appointments: $25 fee if not cancelled a minimum of two hours before appointment time.
