Who Pays the Medical Bills?

UW System is required to pay your medical expenses and mileage. If you paid any of your medical expenses, send itemized receipts to the UW Superior Office of Human Resources, for reimbursement, or if you receive any bills for payment.

UW System may challenge a health care provider's fee as unreasonable or treatment as unnecessary. If so, it may refuse to pay the charge in question and must notify the provider of the dispute. Once a provider receives notice of a dispute about fees or treatment, the provider may not ask you to pay the bill. If you receive a bill for treatment when such a dispute exists, please contact the UW Superior Office of Human Resources.
