Student Health Insurance

Student Health Insurance

Long Island University has partnered with Gallagher Student Health & Special Risk to develop a cost-effective Student Health Insurance Plan that provides our students and families with robust medical coverage at school, back home, and while traveling or studying abroad. The Plan is compliant with all phases of the Federal Health Care Reform and offers students access to a network of doctors, hospitals, and pharmacies throughout the country via UnitedHealthcare. All international students, clinical students, residential students, global studies students, and intercollegiate athletes are automatically enrolled in the Plan but can waive participation online at www.gallagherstudent.com/liu if they have comparable coverage under a family plan or other policy.

In today's digital world, we offer robust web and mobile phone tools for students to access your health insurance information. Students can log into the UnitedHealthcare Student Resources (UHCSR) webpage at www.uhcsr.com or download the free UHCSR Mobile App for Apple or Android phones to perform the following functions:

  • View and share your ID card - you can even email or fax your ID card to your provider
  • View claims received
  • Search for a provider
  • Create your UHCSR My Account
  • Gain quick access to customer service
  • Appoint a personal representative to act on your behalf for health insurance matters with UHCSR
  • Easily review and explore the best care options for your needs
