Health Insurance

The UT System Board of Regents requires students to maintain a valid major medical insurance policy while registered as a student at The University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio. If you do not have your own health insurance policy, you may enroll in the student health insurance plan selected by the UT System. The premiums vary accordingly.

2018-2019 Annual Fees

Student (billed through bursar) $2504
Student + Spouse ($2504) $5008
Student + All Children ($4010) $6514
Student + Spouse + All Children $9018

The rates per semester will vary depending on your academic calendar.  Please consult your enrollment form for the specific amount.


Students enroll themselves in the student health insurance plan using one of two methods:

  1. Selection of the student health insurance plan through the student portal  to be billed with tuition;
  2. Enroll directly with Academic Health Plans during the open enrollment period. Students who enroll directly with Academic Health Plans must enroll during open enrollment or they will have to wait until the next open enrollment period (unless they have a qualified change of status).  This means students can enroll in the health plan only during the open enrollment dates, much like you do as an employee with your employee insurance.  There will be open enrollment dates for each semester.

Fall – Students must enroll no later than September 15th, coverage will be effective the day after they enroll

Spring – no later than March 15th  

Summer – no later than June 15th

How do I add dependents during the open enrollment period?

You can enroll your family using the appropriate enrollment form found at the Academic HealthPlans website. You will see the links to various forms under Enrollment.

Completed forms can be Faxed or Mailed to AHP:

Academic HealthPlans
P.O. Box 1605
Colleyville, TX 76034-1605

Fax Number: 817-809-4701

What do I do when a life event has occurred (turning 26, new child, loss of coverage, etc.)  and I need to add myself and/or my dependents to the School’s insurance plan outside of the open enrollment period?

You will need to complete a Fall 2018 Qualifying Event Form  or a Spring 2019 Qualifying Event Form and send it and your payment directly to Academic Health Plans.

What does insurance cover?

The University of Texas System Student Health Insurance Plan covers Injury and Sickness. Some of the benefits include, but are not limited to Inpatient Hospitalization, Outpatient doctor’s visits, x-rays, laboratory charges, surgery and emergency care. There are limitations and maximums that may apply.

View the 2018-2019 benefits brochure here.

Dental Insurance

Dental coverage is available to students and dependents and can be purchased simultaneously. If the student chooses to purchase dental coverage for the Dependent, it must be purchased at the same time as the student coverage. The Dependent must have the same coverage as the student. To enroll, complete the  Enrollment Form associated with your program and send the form directly to Academic Health Plans along with payment.

What is my policy number?

The University of Texas System Student Health Insurance Policy Number is 101464 for the medical plan. Your policy number is located on your ID Card. Does this plan meet the new Health Care Reform requirements? This Student Health Insurance plan meets the Final Rules related to Student Health Insurance Coverage as defined by the Department of Health and Human Services and the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services.

How do I update my contact information?

It is very important to make sure that your address, phone number, and email address on file is current and accurate. If not, ID cards, explanation of benefits and other notifications about your student health insurance plan may not get to you. If you have moved or your contact information has changed, please update your contact on Additionally, please contact AHP at (855) 247-2273 or so they can update their records.

When will I get my insurance cards?

For students who enroll through the student portal (, payment and information is sent to the insurance company after the student’s first class day. You will receive an insurance card in the mail to the home address in the student system; therefore it is important for the student to maintain the correct home address. If a student needs medical attention before they receive their insurance card, they will need to send an e-mail to: so the office can send their payment to the insurance company earlier.

For students who enroll directly with Academic Health Plans, you should receive an ID card in a few weeks after your enrollment. If you lose your card or need a temporary ID, please contact Academic HealthPlans at (855) 247-2273 or

Doctors and Hospitals

The University of Texas System Student Health Insurance Plan uses BlueChoice PPO Network for its Network Provider. The network consists of facilities and doctors that have joined together to offer services at reduced rates. Expenses may be less in the preferred provider network than would be charges from non-preferred providers.
