Columbia University offers comprehensive medical plan options through UnitedHealthcare (UHC). There are four plans offered: the High Deductible Health Plan (HDHP) and three Choice Plus plans (80, 90 and 100). All of the plans cover the same comprehensive set of services and provide in-network preventive care, such as annual physicals, immunizations and well-baby visits, at 100% with no deductible. 
All medical plan options also include coverage for out-of-network services. If you enroll in the medical plan, you will be automatically enrolled in prescription drug and vision coverage. All University medical plan options cover only medically necessary services and supplies for the purpose of preventing, diagnosing or treating an acute sickness, injury, mental illness, substance abuse or symptoms.
