What is Student Health Insurance?

The University of Nevada, Reno offers a student health insurance plan to graduate, medical and international students only. This plan is a major medical insurance plan specifically designed for students. As a University graduate, medical or international student, dependents can be added to this plan. Dependents are not eligible for care at the Student Health Center.

What is the Student Health Fee?

The Student Health Fee is not an insurance policy. Paying the health fee entitles you to use of the Student Health Center, unlimited primary care office visits, certain laboratory tests and reduced cost of prescription medications. However, procedures, X-rays, and referrals to specialists result in an additional cost. If you are enrolled in 6 or more credits you have automatically been assessed the Student Health Fee. If you are enrolled in less than 6 credits you can opt to pay the Student Health Fee at any time.

What are the benefits?

This insurance policy for Graduate, International and Medical students is currently provided by United Healthcare. It is an accident and sickness policy. There are certain limitations and restrictions of this policy which you can review by reading the Benefits Summary.
