University Health Service

Student Health Insurance Committee (SHIC)

This committee represents students on all U-M campuses to provide an affordable yet comprehensive health insurance plan, in collaboration with the Central Student Government.

Why Students Should Have Health Insurance

Students should have health insurance to cover if you are ill or injured, need to withdraw from school for medical or psychological reasons, or experience a health problem while traveling abroad.


Fees for Others

If you are eligible to use UHS (see Who Can Use UHS?) but you are not a currently enrolled U-M student, you would pay fee-for-service or use billable insurance.

Free or Fees for Students

Most currently enrolled U-M students on the Ann Arbor campus have few expenses at UHS because they are covered by the health service fee. This page explains why and how.
