Student Insurance

Effective 8/14/15, UAA will no longer be sponsoring a student health insurance plan except for UAA 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.

International Students can obtain insurance through LewerMark to meet the University of Alaska Anchorage requirements.

The Student Health and Counseling Center will continue to file claims for Blue Cross Blue Shield plans, and LewerMark, on behalf of the student, for services rendered at the health center.  Please make the insurance card available upon check-in.

A student may submit a claim to their insurance companies other than Blue Cross Blue Shield or LewerMark, 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. 
Call us today for your healthcare needs (907) 786-4040.
