U-M students with Blue Cross Complete (BCC) Healthy Michigan Medicaid can now use their insurance plan at UHS. The new arrangement will allow students to conveniently use their health insurance on campus.

The Michigan Department of Health and Human Services and Michigan BCC have agreed that UHS can participate with BCC specifically for U-M students, their spouses/other qualified adults and dependents. We are grateful for this unique arrangement that can help meet students’ needs, however, please note that the UHS Pharmacy does not participate, and routine eye care services are not covered at UHS.

In the past, UHS was unable to participate in or bill Medicaid plans because we are not a public health care site. However, Central Student Government requested that UHS participate in Medicaid for U-M students, and U-M Administration supported this request.

BCC is the only Michigan Medicaid plan that UHS can accept, because we cannot make arrangements with any other Michigan Medicaid plans. In addition, Medicaid from states other than Michigan will not cover services in the state of Michigan.

Regardless of insurance status, students can use UHS, and and currently enrolled students (Ann Arbor campus) will have relatively few costs because they pay the health service fee. But students may have to pay for some UHS services, either out-of-pocket or by insurance.

For other insurance plans that UHS accepts, see How UHS Works with Insurance.
