Student Health Insurance Plan:
The North Dakota University System (NDUS) is pleased to offer health insurance coverage to NDUS students through United Healthcare insurance company. Domestic students (i.e. American citizens) are not required by the NDUS to carry this coverage. However, the Affordable Care Act does require that you carry some sort of health insurance, and this plan is an option. For more information: https://ndus.edu/student-services/health-insurance/
All SHS charges will be billed to insurance if provided on the day of your visit.
Steps for billing:
- Visit SHS
- Insurance is filed with your insurance company
- Insurance is processed by insurance company. This usually takes 4-6 weeks.
- Unpaid balance that insurance does not cover will show up in Campus Connection account.
