Billing

Insurance & Charges

Charges are assessed for services performed at University Health Services.  The amount owed will be determined by the services provided and the patient’s benefits.

To identify the cost of a specific service, test or procedure, contact UC Health for an estimate at 513-418-2678. You can call Monday – Friday, 8 a.m. 4:30 p.m or visit their website

Private Insurance

University Health Services accepts most insurances.  It is the student/parent’s responsibility to check with their insurance company to verify coverage. Since UHS serves only enrolled students of the University of Cincinnati, you will not find UHS listed on any “how to find a provider” insurance web site. UHS will be listed as University of Cincinnati Physicians Company. If your insurance plan pays to University of Cincinnati Physicians Company and you are the subscriber for your student’s plan, then your student can be seen using your insurance coverage at UHS.  Please verify with your insurance plan what your copay, deductible, coinsurance or out of network benefits will be.

Student Health Insurance

Primary care, including women's health, medically necessary lab work, and x-ray through UHS is covered at no cost when utilizing your student health insurance benefits.  In addition, mental health visits are covered at a $0 co-insurance for most services.  There is also a pharmacy on campus where you can receive prescriptions at a reduced rate.

Referrals:

  • Medical conditions that require treatment by a specialist require a referral from a University Health Services provider.
  • If you are seen in an emergency department, you are required to contact USH to obtain a referral for that visit and any specialist the treating ED physician refers you to.
