All students who attend UNK are expected to have health insurance coverage. A reasonably priced health insurance plan is available for students who are enrolled in 7 or more class hours, and students carrying less than 7 hours who have opted to pay the health fee. For information, go on-line: www.nebraskablue.com/studentblue or contact UNK Health Care at 308-865-8218.
All nonimmigrant international students must have health insurance as a condition of their enrollment and will be automatically billed for health insurance on their billing statements.

If you are international student and you already have insurance coverage that meets federal guidelines you may apply for a waiver from International Student Services in Welch Hall. Click here for instructions on how to complete the waiver.
Charges from UNK Health Care are your responsibility to pay. If you wish to submit those charges to your insurance carrier you may send the invoice given to you by the nurse with your insurer's claim form. UNK Health Care may NOT be a PPO Provider with your insurance company.
Kearney Clinic, Good Samaritan Hospital and other local clinics will request your insurance information when you receive their services. Depending on the type of insurance you carry, their billing office can submit your insurance claim if you provide them with the requested information. If you are insured under a parent's or guardian's policy, please request an extra insurance card from your insurer to bring to college with you.
