The University of Kansas Medical Center offers a health insurance policy for eligible students. This plan, selected for the Kansas regents schools by the State of Kansas, is offered through Student Resources and is underwritten by UnitedHealthCare Student Resources. For information about the policy, please visit be advised, students exclusively taking courses online are not eligible to enroll in the Basic Student Plan through UnitedHealthCare.

It is very important not to confuse the Student Health Fee paid by students each semester with the cost of Health Insurance Premiums. They are two very different things. The Student Health Fee paid by all students contributes to the operational costs of the Student Health Clinic and entitles all students to free office visits with a health care provider. Student Health Insurance Premiums cover the cost of health insurance.
