If you’re bringing health insurance with you
If you’re bringing health insurance with you, carry a copy of your health insurance card 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 refer me to a specialist in the Morris area?
- How can I get emergency coverage after hours or on weekends?
If you don't have health insurance
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.
For information regarding insurance deadlines contact the Office of Student Health Benefits.
Morris provides major medical insurance coverage for participants in intercollegiate athletics at no cost to participants. Participants are required to have insurance coverage that will pay for all of the first $7,500 of the medical expenses of any injury suffered while participating in games, meets, and practices. Coverage under family or other policy will not satisfy this requirement if it has a large deductible or a low maximum for such injuries.
