Accepted Insurance Plans
The Health Center participates in the Tulane-sponsored Student Health Insurance Plan provided by UnitedHealthcare StudentResources, and we accept plans from the following insurance companies:
- BlueCross BlueShield
- United Healthcare
Please check with your insurance plan to verify coverage at the Tulane Student Health Center before your first visit.
To submit claims on your behalf, you must provide us with your current health insurance card(s). We will file for any charges incurred with your primary insurance carrier. If we are not considered “in-network” or your annual deductible has not been met, it is possible that your insurance will not pay for your charges.
We will wait an appropriate time period from the date of filing the claim to receive payment. If the charges are denied or are unpaid, we will transfer the balance to the student's accounts receivable. We will not enter into a dispute with your health insurance company over your claim; this is your responsibility.
It is your responsibility to inform us in a timely manner of any changes to your billing/insurance information.
Prior to your first visit to Campus Health, you will be asked to read and sign financial intake forms.
