Will my insurance pay for my visit?
If you have insurance coverage through the University-endorsed student insurance policy, the Student Health and Wellness Center is considered an in-network provider and most charges are covered. The Student Health and Wellness Center currently ONLY files the University-endorsed student insurance policy. If you DO NOT have the University-endorsed student insurance policy, you may ask for an itemized receipt at check-out to file for reimbursement yourself. For more information, you may call the Billing Department at 940-369-8543.
What must I present in order for you to file on the University-endorsed student insurance?
Students must present a current insurance card and the policyholder's information, including UNT ID number and date of birth.
How and where do I pay?
Payment in full is expected at the time of service in the form of cash, check, or credit card. All balances must be paid in full prior to the end of the month the charge is incurred to avoid a block on the student's account.
