Health Insurance Coverage

If you are enrolled in a UB-sponsored insurance plan (either Blue Cross Blue Shield of Western NY purchased through UB or United Health Care Student Resources purchased through UB), most vaccines are covered in full for most patients. For those enrolled in other insurance plans, vaccinations may be covered by your health insurance — please contact your health insurance company for details. We will provide you with a receipt that you can send to your health insurance company to request reimbursement; however, Health Services does not guarantee reimbursement from any health insurance company.

Types of Payment Accepted

Students can have fees for services billed to their student account.
