All Morris students who register for six or more credits are required to have health insurance coverage. You will have the opportunity to choose between the following during registration on the Health Plan Coverage section; “I acknowledge that I will be enrolled in the University-sponsored Student Health Benefit Plan,” “I have health plan coverage that meets waiver requirements through one of the following,” or “I have health plan coverage that meets waiver requirements through a company other than those listed above.” If you choose “I have health plan coverage that meets waiver requirements through a company other than those listed above,” you will receive an email with information on how to submit a waiver application and certificate of insurance.
If you are an American Indian student registered with and covered by Indian Health Services choose “I have a health plan coverage that meets waiver requirements through one of the following.” Then in the fields below enter as follows;
Name of Insurance Company:Indian Health Services
Health Plan Member ID Number: Student’s ID number
Health Plan Group Number: 612-624-0627
If you‘re bringing health insurance with you, carry a copy of your health insurance card with you at all times. If you’re insured through a family member’s policy, contact that insurance plan‘s administrator and ask the following questions:
- What is the out-of-network (or out-of-state) medical coverage while attending Morris?
- How is off-campus, nonemergency health care covered?
- Whom should I contact and where should I seek treatment if Health Service providers need to refer me to a specialist in the Morris area?
- How can I get emergency coverage after hours or on weekends?
All degree-seeking Morris students registered for six or more credits are eligible to participate in the University of Minnesota Student Health and Benefit Plan and the University Supplemental Dental Plan.
