Health Services

The University of Minnesota Duluth provides coverage for the health care needs of its students by offering one of the best and most comprehensive student health insurance plans in the country, known as the Student Health Benefit Plan (SHBP). The combination of the SHBP and Student Services Fee allows students to be seen at UMD Health Services for general office visits at no cost and some services at a reduced cost. Undergraduate students are automatically assessed the Student Services Fee which covers office visits. Some services such as x-rays, lab tests, minor surgery, some special procedures, and medications do have charges.

Serious accident or medical illnesses are taken care of at local hospitals. An ambulance will be called for any medical emergencies. When possible, students are advised to call the 1-800 phone number on their insurance card prior to going to a hospital or urgent care center. Services at these locations are not paid for by UMD Health Services, but rather by the students’ insurance policy.
