Please read the plan brochure carefully to understand the services that the Plan covers. Remember, no insurance plan covers 100% of all medical costs. However, the Student Health Insurance Plan offered through the University offers comprehensive coverage at an affordable cost. In addition, by using the IU Student Health Center, you can substantially reduce your out-of-pocket expenses. For clinic visits at the IU Health Center, you are not required to pay the annual deductible or co-payment. You will be required to pay the charge for all services received at the time of service, or defer the charge to your Bursar’s Account, and will be given a bill to submit for possible reimbursement. The IU Health Center, located at the corner of Tenth and Jordan (diagonally across from the Main Library) offers a wide range of services to IU students, spouses, and eligible dependents (12 years old and up).
