A Message From the Student Insurance Office:

 The following is in response to inquiries we are receiving regarding COVID-19 benefit coverage under the Blue Cross Blue Shield AcademicBlue student health insurance plan:

  • Please go to https://www.bcbsmt.com/ for Blue Cross Blue Shield coverage information for COVID-19. Alternatively, you can contact Blue Cross directly by calling the Customer Service Students number at 1-855-267-0214 with questions. They will need either your 790# or Social Security Number to locate your file.
  • Please remember that the plan coverage is for the student only. There is no coverage for spouses/dependents under this plan.
  • Remember to have your Blue Cross Blue Shield Student Health Plan insurance card with you when visiting a health care provider. If you do not have an insurance card, or need a replacement, please contact me by emailing your request to studentinsurance@mso.umt.edu. Please, remember to include your 790# University of Montana student identification number, as well as your current mailing address so a permanent card can be mailed to you.

The University of Montana is doing everything it can to keep the faculty, staff, and students updated on COVID-19. For the most current information please, visit https://www.umt.edu/coronavirus/default.php. This is where all campus communications, updates, news and FAQ’s will be posted.

Student Insurance Advocate

Here at the University of Montana, we want our students to succeed. Unexpected medical bills can threaten a student's ability to complete their education. Adequate insurance coverage ensures students get the care they need to maintain good health. The Montana University System requires all students taking 6 or more state supported credits, and paying the mandatory Health Services Fee, have and maintain major medical insurance while they are attending school. 

Please note: Government issued plans (i.e. MediCal, MassHealth, Washington Apple), also known as Medicaid, only cover for services within the state they are issued. Therefore, they do NOT meet the Montana University System insurance requirements. Please, contact the Student Insurance Advocate for information on transitioning Medicaid coverage to Montana.

Non-government issued private medical insurance plans vary. It is YOUR responsibility to make sure that the health coverage plan you are currently under covers you for all the medical services you may need while you are attending classes at the University of Montana. You can do this by contacting your current health insurance carrier.

If you find you have inadequate insurance coverage, or you are uninsured, there are resources to help you obtain health coverage while you are a student at the University of Montana. Accept the student insurance plan during registration and contact the Student Insurance Advocate for more information.

Attention Students with Medicaid, Medicare or TRICARE

Medicaid, Medicare and TRICARE are government issue health plans. We would love to be your health care provider. We offer greatly reduced prices for services at Curry Health Center for all UM students. 

Please note:  We are not Medicaid, Medicare or TRICARE providers.  Medicaid, Medicare nor TRICARE will not pay for any services received at Curry Health Center. 


Changes to your initial insurance selection during the registration process cannot be made through Cyberbear. You must contact the Student Insurance Advocate BEFORE  the 15th class day with this request.

For questions, or more information on any part of the insurance site, please contact the Student Insurance Advocate at 406-243-2844 or studentinsurance@mso.umt.edu.
