Curry Health Center Billing
Curry Health Center does not directly bill any private insurance plan, outside of the Student Health Insurance Plan, for services. Any charges for services at Curry Health Center will go on the student's account. Instead, the Curry Health Center provides an insurance walk out statement with all of the needed insurance information and codes for the student to submit the claim to their private insurance carrier.
To obtain a walk out statement for charges incurred in a current semester, the student can access them via their Health Portal at https://curryhealthcenterhealthportal.sa.umt.edu/. Cyberbear credentials are needed to log in.
To obtain a walk out statement for charges incurred in previous semesters, the student must contact the department who provided the services directly. Sorry Mom or Dad but due to HIPAA the student must do the requesting.
Once the walk out statement has been received by the student, the instructions for how to send the insurance walk out statement to their insurance plan are located on the bottom of the statement.
If the insurance company pays (i.e. after deductible, copays, etc.), they will pay the insurance policy holder directly and not Curry Health Center or The University of Montana-Missoula. Therefore, the student must still pay any charges on their Cyberbear account.
All students who are on the BCBS of MT student insurance plan will receive an insurance card the first semester they are on the plan. You will continue to use this insurance card for subsequent semesters, as long as you remain enrolled in the student insurance plan. If you need a replacement card, please contact Blue Cross Blue Shield AcademicBlue Customer Service at 1-855-267-0214
To bill the student insurance plan for medical and prescription charges (EXCEPT for Curry Health Center charges) the student would just provide their insurance card to the provider that they see. That provider/pharmacy would then do the billing to the insurance plan as needed.
The Curry Health Center does not bill Medicaid. Medicaid will not reimburse for services provided by the Curry Health Center. Medicaid clients are required to apply for a state program. Please see the STUDENT INSURANCE/MEDICAID section of the insurance site.
