As many of you are aware we have had a challenging year this
year trying to get the new plan set up. I apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused you, and I am
here to help expedite any problems. If
you are having problems filling prescriptions or need you eligibility on the
plan please contact my office by email firstname.lastname@example.org. I can then have the AmeriBen manually update
the system so you can get the services you need. As soon as I hear the issues have been
resolved I will post that info. As for
the reasons it was a combination of the new plan and Health Care Reform, which
does not only affect benefits, but also how the information has to be
transmitted to even little details like the font used in brochures and member
If you did pay for anything out of pocket you may submit
those for reimbursement. You will find
the forms located under form link on this site.
The Student Health Insurance Plan is an annual full-service medical insurance plan tailored to the needs of the students of the Anschutz Medical Campus. The plan is underwritten by UnitedHealthCare and administered by AmeriBen 1-855-639-8679. For the 12-13 Plan Year the Student Health Office will be offering two insurance plans. The annual cost of the student insurance For Plan is $3,460 and Plan B is $2,688 ( half is charged to your tuition bill in the fall and the other half in the spring tuition). Spring only coverage is from 1/1/13-8/31/13, you may only enroll in the spring term if you are a new student or have been involuntarily dropped from another plan.
Here you will find various forms sometimes need to file claims along with the enrollment/waiver form. If you have any questions about any of these forms or do not see the form you need please contact the Student Health Office at 303-724-7674.
Finding a network provider might be easier then you think. Please follow the instruction to ensure that you are seen by an in-network provider.
It is the student’s responsibility to confirm whether or not a particular service is covered under the plan. This confirmation must be done with AmeriBen by calling them at 1-855-639-8679. Health Office staff, including medical providers, are not adequately trained to provide confirmation of coverage for any services.
Benefits are provided through Express Scripts, a point-of-service provider. Please call 1-800-206-4005 for questions regarding benefits or participating pharmacies. If an Insured Individual incurs Rx claims within the first 6 weeks of enrollment or prior to receiving an insurance card, the Insured Individual must pay for the Rx and submit a claim to after the 6th week.
