Student Health Insurance

​Your health is important to Union College. All students taking 12 hours or more are required to carry health/accident insurance.

If you do not have your own insurance, you may apply for coverage through Union College on the online registration checklist.
Alternatively, if you have your own insurance, you may choose to waive coverage through Union College on the registration checklist. When you waive coverage, you'll be required to submit a copy of the front and back of your insurance card.
*NOTE: If you need blank paper copies of the forms, you can download them using the links above.

All full-time students (those enrolled in 12 hours or more) are automatically covered by accident insurance paid for by Union College. This policy covers the student whether they are injured on or off campus. Coverage will provide up to $1,000. Benefits provided are in excess to other valid and collective insurances or plans.

If you or your parents are members of an HMO outside the state of Nebraska, you will want to check with the HMO before you arrive on campus to see what provisions need to be made to see a physician outside of your state.

Unless it is an emergency, you will not be able to see a local physician without prior approval from your HMO.
With some HMOs it is possible to get a guest membership while a student is attending school out of state.
