Student Insurance

Unexpected illnesses and accidents that require medical attention or hospitalization are an unfortunate fact of life. These misfortunes are distressing from a financial as well as a health point of view and indicate a need for a health insurance program.

A health insurance policy offered through United Healthcare Student Resource is available for students enrolled in six (6) or more credits at MSC/UAA. A summary of benefits, costs, and exclusions are available on the United Healthcare website as well as brochures and an online enrollment option.

Your spouse and children may be enrolled in the program for an additional cost. Please be advised that this is a limited policy designed for a typically healthy college population. You are encouraged to compare this policy and the premium cost with other private insurance policies available in the community before you make your decision as individual circumstances may allow some students to obtain health insurance at lower rates with other companies in your area.  Please note that as a result of the Affordable Care Act, many young adults are eligible to remain on their parent’s health insurance plan until their 26th birthday.

If you have questions about the policy and its coverage, contact United Healthcare Student Resources customer services at 1-800-767-0700 or visit
