Medical Insurance Requirements
The University of North Carolina General Administration has announced changes to the student health insurance program for 2013-2014. Beginning in the fall 2013 semester, Student Blue, underwritten by Blue Cross Blue Shield of North Carolina (BCBSNC), will be the new insurance vendor on all 16 UNC campuses. Students must enroll in or waive (opt out of) the coverage no later than September 10, 2013. Students that do not submit an approved waiver, and have not enrolled themselves in the program, will be enrolled automatically at a cost of $688 per semester.
Students who have existing family or individual coverage through another Blue Cross Blue Shield plan must still go through the enrollment/wavier process.

Students are offered the Student Health insurance through Blue Cross Blue Shield of North Carolina (BCBS, NC) which will cover most costs associated with clinical visits. The charge associated with the BCBS, NC insurance will not be billed to students’ account if students are covered by an alternate medical insurance plan comparable to the BCBS, NC plan. The NC Medicaid plan will be evaluated on the same criteria as other medical plans. Students are responsible for all charges not covered by their respective medical plans.
For students who do not have the Blue Cross Blue Shield Student Insurance, as required by your insurance company, your co-payment is due at time of service.
