Effective 8/14/15, UAA will no longer be sponsoring a student health insurance plan except for International Students, and Graduate Students who are RA's or TA's on a stipend, or Graduates starting their first year at UAA who are in the WWAMI Program.
The Student Health and Counseling Center will continue to file claims for Blue Cross Blue Shield plans, and PGH International, on behalf of the student, for services rendered at the health center. Please make the insurance card available upon check-in.
International Students can obtain insurance through PGH Global to meet the University of Alaska Anchorage requirements at http://www.pghintlstudent.com/.
A student may submit a claim to insurance companies other than Blue Cross Blue Shield, with billing information provided by the Student Health and Counseling Center.
UAA continues to remain a voluntary enrollment campus regarding the purchase of health insurance for all students except for International students and some healthcare programs.
The Student Health and Counseling Center provides quality, accessible, convenient,
and affordable healthcare to all eligible students.
