The University of Northern Iowa is concerned about the potential threat the high cost of health and dental care may pose to a student’s financial well being. For this reason, the University offers health and dental insurance coverage to students through the Student Health Insurance Plan (SHIP), a group policy administered by Wellmark Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Iowa, and the Student Dental Insurance, a group policy administered by Delta Dental of Iowa through The University of Iowa Benefits Office.

If a student has their current health insurance information on file with our clinic, the Student Health Clinic will bill their insurance company for any charges that the student may incur during their visit at the clinic. Any charges that are not covered by the insurance company will be transferred to the student’s U-bill account.
The Student Health Clinic is an AAAHC accredited facility. We participate in a voluntary site survey to measure the quality of our services and performance against nationally recognized standards of The Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care.
