To meet the needs of students both with and without private health insurance, we have developed an office visit plan (OVP) for a fee per semester. The OVP covers all office visits incurred during a semester. The plan was developed for the convenience of our students who need easy access to a medical provider between classes, or while away from home. It eliminates any co-payment that may be necessary with other insurance providers and provides discounted fees on certain procedures.
There are two ways to enroll in the OVP:
- All students living in University housing are required by University policy to be enrolled in the OVP. If you live in University housing the OVP fee is automatically charged to your account for every semester that you are consecutively enrolled at USI. Students who move out of University housing may request to drop the OVP. See the paragraph below regarding deadline dates.
- Students living off campus may submit an online form it to the University Health Center, Health Professions Building room 0091, 8600 University Boulevard, Evansville, IN 47712. The OVP fee will then be charged to your account for every semester that you are consecutively enrolled at USI.
To be eligible for a credit, cancellation, or refund of the current semester’s health services fee, drop requests must be received in the University Health Center by the dates listed below. The student must not have used the services of the University Health Center within the first four weeks of the current semester. Drop requests received after these dates will take effect the following semester. Student cannot drop the plan as long as they live in University housing.
