The University of Houston Student Health Center Granted AAAHC Re-Accreditation

The University of Houston Student Health Center has been granted re-accreditation by the Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care (AAAHC). Accreditation distinguishes the UHStudent Health Center from many other out-patient facilities by assuring that the highest quality of care is delivered to its patients as determined by an independent, external process of evaluations. The UH Student Health Center has been accredited by the AAAHC since 2012.

Change in Student Health Insurance Plan:

The University of Houston System has made the decision that a change in the Student Health Insurance Plan (SHIP) is necessary beginning the 2018-2019 Academic Year.  United Healthcare (Student Resources) will be the new Student Health Insurance Plan for all UH System components.  United HealthCare presented a plan that offers an annual premium cost that is less than the annual renewal rate requested by the current SHIP provider.  Academic HealthPlans will continue as the insurance administrator.

Benefits and voluntary enrollment information is available at

Additional changes, mandatory enrollment and waiver information for International Students with an F and J Visa status is available at

Come take advantage of this first-rate health insurance plan and it’s excellent benefits that are offered! One of the chief benefits of this plan, is the ability to utilize the Student Health Center at no cost. Yes, no cost! Pretty cool huh?  All deductibles, copays, and co-insurances will be waived and all services are covered at 100 percent when you purchase this plan, and any treatment is rendered only at the UH Student Health Center.
