Does UHealth accept my insurance plan?
University of Miami Health System hospitals and clinics accept all indemnity insurance products (traditional major medical), Campus, Workers Compensation, Medicare, and Medicaid. The health system and its doctors also contract with several managed health organizations, such as health maintenance organizations (HMOs) and preferred provider organizations (PPOs).
Please bring all insurance information, including insurance cards, when you come to your appointment. Many medical insurance companies, as well as HMOs, require preauthorization for medical services. Please consult with your insurance company or primary care physician to obtain a preauthorization, if required, prior to the date of your appointment.

What do I need to know before my clinic visit?
When you visit, please bring the proper insurance identification cards so that we can submit your claims to your insurance company. If you are required to file personally for your company's insurance, we will provide you with all necessary forms to file your own claim.
For your safety, you will be asked to state your name and date of birth, as well as show a photo ID.
When you complete your visit, you will be expected to pay any charges that will not be reimbursed by insurance (e.g., copayments and deductibles), unless you have made prior arrangements with one of our financial counselors.
Because your insurance coverage is a contract between you and your insurance company, it is your responsibility to obtain any physician referral precertification that your insurance company requires in order for your visit to be covered.
What to bring to your appointment
- Your insurance card
- Photo ID
- Copay for your insurance plan
- Bottles of any prescription or over-the-counter medicines that you are currently taking
- Any other information you would like to share with your doctor
What questions should I ask my doctor or nurse?
We want you to be an active participant in your care. Sharing information among patients, staff members, and family members fosters an open environment for making good decisions.
We encourage you to know and participate in your care plan. Here are some ways you can be involved:
- Listen carefully when the risks, benefits, and alternatives of any procedure are being explained – repeat what the doctors and nurses say in your own words and take notes.
- Ask any questions you have. Speak up if something is unclear or confusing and keep asking until you understand.
- Only agree to those things that you fully understand.
- Remember that you have many rights as a patient including the right to refuse any treatments.
- Provide complete and accurate information about your medical history, conditions, and allergies. Also, let us know if you are participating in a research study.
- Provide us with the names of your family members or friends you want to be involved in your health care.
