Health Insurance 101 Video

As a student, you want to achieve your academic goals. Health insurance can help, but it can be confusing. This video explains how health insurance works, so you can use your insurance and achieve your academic goals.

Laboratory Tests Performed at UHS

The following laboratory tests are performed at University Health Service.

Most currently enrolled students on the Ann Arbor campus pay nothing for these tests, although their personal health insurance is billed. If insurance doesn't cover the cost, students still pay nothing out-of-pocket.

Costs for Students

Most currently enrolled students pay nothing for most primary care and specialist visits at UHS. That’s because U-M students who are currently enrolled in regular classes on the Ann Arbor campus pay a health service fee as part of tuition. This fee helps to fund clinical and wellness services at UHS and to create a health-promoting campus culture.

Concerned about Health Care Costs or Privacy?

For currently enrolled U-M students, UHS will bill insurance for costs that the health service fee does not support.

By law, health care services are confidential, however the policy holder on your insurance (your parent if you're on their insurance) may receive an Explanation of Benefits (EOB) from your insurance company detailing the services you receive at UHS.
