STUDENT HEALTH INSURANCE PLAN 2016-2017
The University of Colorado, Anschutz Medical Campus, Student Health Insurance Plan is an annual, full-service medical insurance plan tailored to the needs of our students. The plan is underwritten by UnitedHealthCare and administered by AmeriBen.
 
How does it work?
ALL STUDENTS at the Anschutz Medical campus taking 1 or more credit hours will automatically be enrolled on our Plan A coverage (low deductible plan, see details below). You may change your enrollment to Plan B (high deductible plan) by contacting the student insurance office. The insurance premium will be added to your tuition. Once your insurance is active you will receive an ID card as well as access to your account at http://www.ameriben.com/amc.htm where you will be able to view benefits, download your ID card, or find a provider.
 
What if I have coverage through an outside insurance company?
You can waive out of the student insurance plan by filling out an insurance waiver. Your personal insurance must meet all the requirements stated under “waiving health insurance” in order to be approved. Waivers have to be submitted each year before the stated deadlines.   
 
What about dependents?
We currently do not offer the option of enrolling dependents on our student insurance plan. We recommend contacting the Colorado Healthcare Exchange atwww.connectforhealthco.com or reach out to one of their certified brokers to find suitable care. Additionally the insurance providers below offer a range of plans in Colorado :
