All students enrolled at UNO have access to Ochsner Health Clinic - UNO, regardless of whether or not they have insurance of any kind. However, we only provide primary care. In order to provide access to specialist care, emergency room, and other services, UNO arranges for a Student Health Insurance Plan (SHIP)
It is the responsibility of the student to become familiar with the policy and use it properly should they decide to purchase it. UNO does not adjudicate claims nor does it intercede in claim disputes. Questions regarding claims or enrollment should be addressed to the insurance company. Please read the policy carefully including the exclusions and call the insurance company with any questions.
It is very important to keep the insurance company (and UNO) abreast of any changes in your address. Relevant contact information is listed below.
