In-Network Providers

The United Healthcare Plan is a Choice Plus plan that provides coverage throughout the continental United States. Please review the Schedule of Benefits located in United Healthcare's Certificate of Coverage page 37 for further information regarding deductible, copayments, coinsurance, and out-of-pocket maximum.

To locate a In- Network provider, pharmacy, or hospital  in your area follow the steps below:

 

Out-of-Network Providers

Out-of-network providers may not accept payment of students' cost share (deductible and payment percentage) as payment in full and may therefore bill students for the difference between the amount billed and the amount paid by the plan. If an emergency room facility or physician bills you for an amount above your cost share, you are not responsible for paying that amount. Please send the bill to the address listed on your member ID card and the insurance company will resolve any payment dispute with the provider over that amount. Make sure your member ID number is on the bill.

Students who are graduating or no longer attending NSU may purchase the three-month continuation option directly with United Healthcare within 30 days of your coverage end date. The three-month continuation option will provide an additional three months of coverage based on your current student insurance coverage end date. Please contact studenthealth@nova.edu to confirm your coverage end date.
