AFTER-HOURS CARE FOR STUDENTS WITH UT SHIP

Students enrolled in the UT System Student Health Insurance Plan (UT SHIP) have valuable resources available to them, including access to a broad Participating Provider Option (PPO) Network from Blue Cross Blue Shield of Texas, virtual visits for medical and mental health needs, and a 24/7 Nurseline.

When seeking treatment outside of the student health center, please use the Provider Finder Tool resource from Blue Cross Blue Shield to find in-network doctors and hospitals in your area. Co-payments, deductibles, and out-of-pocket expenses are applicable when receiving treatment outside of the student health center. Please review the UT SHIP Brochure for more information.

Academic Blue 24/7 Nurseline: Registered nurses are on call at 1-800-581-0368 to give general health tips and trusted guidance on where to seek care when Health Services is closed. This benefit is only available to students enrolled in UT SHIP. 

Virtual Visits with MDLive: Students enrolled in Academic Blue also have access to virtual visits with MDLive. Virtual visits provide a live consultation with an MDLive physician for many non-emergency medical health needs. Students can also speak with a licensed counselor, therapist or psychiatrist for support with issues such as anxiety, depression, trauma and loss or relationship problems.
