Student Health Insurance for Point Park University
UPMC Health Plan ... Your Health Is Our #1 Priority
UPMC Health Plan’s Student Health Plan is designed to complement your Point Park University Student Health and Counseling Services. UPMC Health Plan can cover the more extensive medical treatment or emergency care that you may require during your student years that is not covered by your tuition fee. See pages 10 and 11 of your Point Park University Student Health Plan Brochure for the full range of UPMC Health Plan covered services.
As part of an integrated health care delivery system, UPMC Health Plan includes more than 80 hospitals and more than 9,800 physicians in a 29-county region. We make it our responsibility to help each of our student members enjoy the best quality of life and health possible. Through the many primary care physicians and specialists in our outstanding provider network, we help our members to remain healthy as well as to detect any medical problems at an early stage when treatment is more effective and may prevent such problems from escalating into serious illness.
If your doctor does not participate in the UPMC Health Plan network, you are still covered. Your student health insurance plan gives you the freedom to see out-of-network providers for only slightly more than the cost of seeing a participating provider.
Out-of-area students who go home for extended visits and students who travel within the U.S. can use the physicians and facilities within the Private Healthcare Systems (PHCS) and MultiPlan network and Medical Mutual of Ohio (MMO). This is the largest PPO network in the country, with nearly 550,000 providers and over 4,500 facilities.
