United Healthcare chosen as benefits provider for 2022-2023 academic year
July 21, 2022

The provider for graduate staff benefits for the 2022-2023 academic year is changing from Anthem to United Healthcare Student Resources (UHCSR), a national carrier with additional resources in mental health that will be available to the Purdue student body.

A review of the medical plan was completed, and UHCSR was selected effective August 1, 2022. The UHCSR medical plan is identical to the Anthem plan in terms of coverage and services; however, due to the increase in healthcare costs across the nation, premiums will be increased for the plan year. Rates can be found here for the graduate staff and student plans.

Open enrollment ends at 5 p.m. ET September 6. Elections made during the annual open enrollment period for the 2022-2023 academic year will be in effect from August 1, 2022, through July 31, 2023.

A list of FAQs and more information regarding this change can be found here.

Voicing Concerns at PUSH
September 2, 2022

The PUSH Patient Advocate does not address concerns about Covid-related housing, isolation or class absences. Those inquiries should go to pphc@121.health

Our goal at the Purdue Student Health Center is to provide you with the best possible care and services. If your experience did not meet our goal, please let us know by contacting the Student Health Center Patient Advocate, Kami Young, at 765-494-2529, or via email at young617@purdue.edu or in person at PUSH room 333. You may also report your concern to the Purdue University Enterprise-wide hotline 866-818-2620 or https://www.purdue.edu/hotline/.

Because we know that health insurance and billing can also be a source of concern, we want to help with that as well. Please contact Lori Blair, Business Services Manager at 765-496-3138 or via email at blair12@purdue.edu for billing and insurance concerns.

Detailed medical bills are available to students online for up to 2 years from their date of service through the Patient Portal.
