UT SHIP Payment Changes

Students who have purchased UT SHIP will no longer be required to make a payment at the time they receive services at the Student Health Center. The center will start filing insurance claims directly with Blue Cross Blue Shield on behalf of students who are covered by the plan. Services received at the Student Health Center are 100 percent covered by UT SHIP. Students who have chosen not to purchase UT SHIP will be required to make payment at the time they receive services.
