The Community College of Denver, Metropolitan State University of Denver, and the University of Colorado Denver – Downtown Campus have leaders and stakeholders who are aware of the varied needs of their urban student population, one of which is health. To meet these needs, all three institutions offer a Student Health Insurance Program that incorporates the services provided on campus by the Health Center at Auraria. Metro requires students to have health insurance, while CCD and CU Denver have voluntary programs.
Health Insurance is one of the most important products that consumers purchase. Our goal is to ensure that our constituents are informed consumers. Please become familiar with your health insurance plan so you know the answers to these questions:
How do you find and access in-network medical care?
Are there any well-care benefits included in your plan?
Do you have a co-payment? If so, how much is it?
What is your annual deductible?
After your deductible is met, what percentage does your plan pay and what percentage is your responsibility? and
What conditions or services are excluded from your coverage?
No one anticipates getting ill or injured, but the need for medical care occurs for each of us at various times in our lives. Be prepared by having a legitimate health insurance plan that covers a broad range of medical services. When it comes to health insurance, the most affordable plan you can find will most often not provide the best coverage. For this reason, become a consumer advocate by familiarizing yourself with how to compare health insurance plans and benefits. You will be happy you became knowledgeable when the time comes for you to access medical care.
