Insurance Plans & Rates

Everything you ever wanted to know about the health care plan at Notre Dame

The Notre Dame-sponsored student insurance plan is excellent, affordable and available to both undergraduate and graduate students. Health insurance for undergraduates is encouraged but not mandated; however, graduate students and international students must be covered by a health insurance plan.

All registered, degree-seeking graduate students and all international students are automatically enrolled in the student insurance plan unless proof of comparable coverage is provided. The premium of the student health insurance plan is assigned to your student account.

For Notre Dame students only   

If health insurance is desired, student dependents have a choice of an optional plan. Only Notre Dame students may use the medical services provided at Saint Liam Hall Health Services; however, dependents may have prescriptions filled at the UHS pharmacy according to University policy and their plan benefits.

No insurance plan provides 100 percent coverage, and the University does not assume responsibility for any medical cost incurred by students.

Automatic filing

Students who are covered by the University-sponsored student insurance program will automatically have their insurance claims filed. Otherwise, you will be able to print an itemized statement to submit to your private insurance carrier from our online tool at onlinestudenthealth.nd.edu. Please be aware that UHS does not participate in any individual networks. UHS will be out of network and all charges may not be covered.
