University Health Service (UHS)
Health Insurance for Residents of the
Eastman Institute for Oral Health
During the time of your appointment at the University of Rochester, you will be participating in a comprehensive health plan offered by the University Health Service (UHS). The health plan includes a health fee (also called the mandatory health fee) and health insurance.
Your coverage will include:
- Health Fee: This fee covers the cost of visits to the University Health Service (UHS) and the University Counseling Center (UCC). The health fee is $40/month through July 31, 2013.
- Health Insurance: You can enroll in the University-sponsored Aetna Student Health insurance offered through UHS, or you can remain on your own insurance. The cost for this insurance plan is $163/month through July 31, 2013. For detailed information about benefits covered by this insurance plan, check the University of Rochester page on the Aetna Student Health web site. Please note: Since primary care services are provided by the University Health Service (UHS), the Aetna Student Health plan does not provide coverage for visits to primary care providers within 50 miles of the University. Your visits to the University Health Service for primary care are covered by the health fee (see above).
If you have a spouse and/or children:
If you are enrolling in the Aetna Student Health insurance, you can also enroll your spouse/domestic partner and dependent child(ren) in the plan. You and your spouse/domestic partner both pay the health fee, which covers visits to the University Health Service (UHS) and the University Counseling Center (UCC), and the health insurance fee.
If you are enrolling your dependent child(ren), the cost is $277.50/monththrough July 31, 2013. You do not pay the health fee for your child(ren) since the University Health Service does not provide primary care services for children under age 16. Check "Insurance for Families" for more information, including information about "Insurance Options through New York State." You child may be eligible for a program through New York State.
