Understanding an Explanation of Benefits

After you've seen a provider for care, you will receive a document from Medica called an "Explanation of Benefits" (EOB). The EOB is a record of the services you or another family member received on a certain date.

Additional Medical Benefits

UnitedHealthcare Global
Worldwide emergency medical assistance,travel assistance services, and evacuation services for political or natural disaster causes are available when you are 100 or more miles away from home. You are automatically covered by the program when you enroll in any one of the medical plan options.

Virtual Care
Some common conditions—such as cold, flu, pink eye, and sinus infections—can be treated quickly and easily using online or virtual care. You save time by avoiding a trip to the doctor or clinic and can often get help evenings or sometimes even 24/7.

Convenience Care/Walk-In Clinics
The convenience care clinics on the Duluth and Twin Cities campuses provide medical care for you and your family. No appointment is necessary.

Travel Program
When traveling or attending college outside of the plan's service area, you may receive in-network benefits for your medical services if you use a provider in the designated network from Medica.
