The United Healthcare student health insurance plan is a Choice Plus plan that provides coverage throughout the continental United States. 

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

    • Visit
      • Select Find Providers
    • Medical claims rendered by Select Providers listed on the United Healthcare's Certificate of Coverage found on pages 86-87, may not be subjected to a deductible, nor a copayment. Please note, this does not guarantee payment.  We are not able to determine if and what benefits are payable until an actual claim for services is received.  Benefit payment shall be subject to all deductible, copayment, coinsurance, exclusions and limitations, or any other provisions of the policy effective at the time of service.

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. The three-month continuation option will provide up to  three months of coverage based on your current student insurance coverage end date. Please contact to confirm your coverage end date.

Please note, your insurance coverage will remain active until the end of your program’s academic year. This means your coverage period may extend past your graduation date and/or class end date; you will then be eligible for the three-month continuation option. (Example: If you graduated in May, your plan may continue to cover you until the end of your academic program year in July or August. 

 Please read the following important information prior to electing to enroll: 

  • It is recommended to purchase the three-month continuation option a month prior to your student insurance coverage end date.
  • You will not be able to purchase the three-month continuation option after 14 days of your student insurance coverage end date.
  • The maximum length of coverage under the continuation option is three consecutive months from your coverage end date.
  • Cost will vary based on the amount of months of coverage selected. If payment is not received within 14 days of initial request, your request will be canceled.
  • The three-month continuation option is not renewable, nor can the policy be canceled once an application has been purchased.

To request the Three-Month Continuation Option you must log into your My Account , select Coverage Information, and click on Enroll in Continuation. If you need further assistance please contact United Healthcare member services by phone at 1- 800-767-0700.
