Health Insurance

Degree seeking students enrolled for 6+ credits must have health insurance coverage. Health Service will be scanning insurance cards and billing your insurance for services rendered. Please bring your card with you to your appointments. 

Students will select one of the following options through the MyU Student page:

  • "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."
  • "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'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.

Intercollegiate Athletics

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.

Billing/Insurance Explanation of Benefits (EOB's)

An explanation of benefits (commonly referred to as an EOB form) is a statement sent by a health insurance company to covered individuals
explaining what medical treatments and/or services were paid for on their behalf. EOB forms you receive for medical care at Health Service in Morris will state the services are provided by Boynton Health Service.

The patient responsibility for the services not paid for by the insurance company are billed to the patient by the clinic or hospital where the bill was incurred.

In the case of students who utilize the services of the Health Service at the University of MN, Morris, the patient's responsibility is covered by student health fees. Students will not receive a bill from Health Services.

Should a student be sent to Stevens Community Medical Center for lab, x-rays, procedures or an appointment for a specialty doctor, the student will receive a bill from Stevens Community Medical Center for the patient responsibility portion of charges incurred.

If you have any questions regarding your EOB, please e-mail Health Service at or call us at (320) 589-6070.
