2 After deductible is met, Blue Cross Blue Shield pays 80% of remaining eligible costs that were accrued using medical staff and/or services listed with the Blue Cross Blue Shield Choice PPO network. The student pays 20%.

If the student uses staff and/or services not listed on the Blue Cross Blue Shield network, the student pays a higher percentage of the bill, 40% of Usual and Customary charges plus 100% or any charges above Usual and Customary prices. It benefits you financially to stay within the assigned network.

Prescription Benefits

There is not a maximum on the prescription benefit. You must purchase the prescription in full from a pharmacy of your choice. Prescription coverage for PPO Network pharmacies are covered at 100% after:

  • $15 copay for Generic drugs
  • $30 copay for Preferred Brand drugs
  • $50 copay for Name Brand drugs

To get the most of out of your prescription benefit, ask your doctor if generic drugs are available. If you need to file a claim for reimbursement through Prime Therapeutics, see the claims page.

Proof of Insurance Card

Blue Cross Blue Shield sends one card per school year to policyholders. In your first semester of coverage you should receive an insurance card 2-4 weeks after Census Day. (Because eligibility for the UT Dallas Student Health Insurance Plan is contingent upon enrollment at UT Dallas, insurance cards cannot be sent until all students are officially registered, which is Census Day.) You may also print a card from the Blue Cross Blue Shield website at that time.

Interim Coverage Letter

Because your student health insurance coverage must be renewed each semester, the dates of your coverage coincide with each respective semester. Should you need to receive medical treatment or fill a prescription between the start date of the current semester’s insurance policy and census day of the current semester, please contact stuhealthinsurance@utdallas.edu or call 972-883-2747 to secure an Interim Coverage Letter. The Interim Coverage Letter will serve as your temporary proof of insurance until the insurance company is able to mail your official insurance card, which will be sometime after census day.

If you need to add dependents or extend dependent coverage on your policy, you will need to request that your coverage be updated directly with the insurance company. Dependent enrollment cannot be processed until the student’s enrollment has been updated to reflect the current semester’s coverage. To add or extend dependent coverage, please complete the International Dependent Enrollment Form at utdallas.myahpcare.com.

Repatriation and medical evacuation coverage is included in the UT Dallas Student Health Insurance Plan. Students who are approved for SHI fee waivers with alternative insurance that do not include repatriation and medical evacuation coverage will be charged each semester at the student rate below.
