    Before You Visit

    All patients who do not have the University of Maryland Student Health Insurance Plan (SHIP) are advised to contact their health insurance plan provider to inquire about what services may or may not be covered; many plans do NOT cover services outside of their geographical areas. The University Health Center is considered out-of-network & can not bill some HMO/POS plans such as Kaiser & Tricare Prime. We can not bill Medicare and out of state Medicaid. Please visit our Insurance and Billing section to learn more.
