The University of Florida sponsors health insurance plans for undergraduate, unsupported graduate and international students. These plans are currently administered by UnitedHealthcare StudentResources. (NOTE: Enrollment in a university-sponsored insurance plan is optional.)
Although SHCC Patient Financial Services (Phone: 352-273-4546 or email: email@example.com) is here to help, it is the patient’s responsibility to know what their insurance policy covers — and the patient is ultimately liable for any charges not covered by insurance. Contact the insurance company in advance of care to learn about policy benefits in detail.
