It is mandatory for every student to carry health insurance coverage.  Any student without a private health insurance is required to subscribe to the Institutional Health Insurance Plan through the Office of the Dean of Admissions and Student Affairs.  Students are encouraged to use this service in the most cost-effective manner.  The student who has subscribed to the Institutional Health Insurance Plan may visit the physician, laboratory, or any health care service of his/her choice in accordance to the insurer policies. Minor or mayor emergencies are channeled through the closest Emergency Room accessible to the student.  Students are encouraged to be cognizant and informed about the dependent coverage, accident insurance, and disability insurance.  Students can access health services at the CUMIC or the HURRA emergency room while at the UCC.
