Student Health Insurance


The University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus offers health insurance through the UnitedHealthCare Insurance Company and provides a UnitedHealthCare StudentResources Student Injury and Sickness Insurance Plan. All students enrolled in a degree and certain approved certificate seeking programs taking 1 or more credit hours are automatically enrolled in this insurance plan unless a successful insurance waiver is submitted prior to the waiver deadline each year.

To waive out of the student insurance plan, your personal insurance must meet all the requirements stated under enrolling or waiving health insurance to be approved. Waivers must be submitted each year before the stated deadlines.​​ For students wishing to waive insurance for the 2017-2018 academic year, the insurance waiver portal will be available in late summer. 


Here you will find various forms sometimes needed to file claims along with the late enrollment form. If you have any questions about any of these forms or do not see the form you need please contact the Office of Student Health Promotion at 303-724-7674 or  

Find A Provider

Finding a network provider is easier than you think. Please follow the instructions to ensure that you are seen by an in-network provider.

It is each student’s responsibility to confirm if a particular service is covered under the student health insurance plan. 


Prescriptions can be mail ordered through UnitedHealthCare Pharmacy. For more information please refer to the Highlights of Coverage section in the plan summary brochure.  Information on Network Pharmacies is available through the United Health Care Student Resources Center or by calling Customer Service at 1-855-828-7716.


The University of Colorado, Anschutz Medical Campus, Student Health Insurance Plan is an annual, full-service medical insurance plan tailored to meet the needs of 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 each semester. Once your insurance is active you will receive an ID card as well as access to your account at where you will be able to view benefits, download your ID card, and 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 each fall. 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 at or reach out to one of their certified brokers to find suitable care.
