Insurance Alert!!

Carnegie Mellon University contracts with UPMC Sports Medicine to provide additional care for our student athletes. Student athletes are responsible for contacting their insurance carrier(s) prior to enrollment in order to ensure that they will cover emergency and non-emergency services at UPMC facilities in the event that the student athlete is injured while participating in athletics. If a student’s insurance policy does not provide out-of-network coverage for non-emergency care at UPMC medical facilities, the student athlete is strongly encouraged to obtain the student medical health insurance plan provided through University Health Services.
