Information About Mumps and Pertussis
This semester, UT Austin has had cases of students diagnosed with mumps, a contagious viral infection, and pertussis, also known as whooping cough. University Health Services (UHS) in coordination with the Austin/Travis County Health and Human Services Department is partnering to notify individuals with potential exposure to these students. The UT Select medical insurance plan for staff and faculty provides 100% coverage with zero co-pay or deductible for recommended vaccines, including the measles, mumps and rubella vaccine (MMR) and the tetanus, diphtheria and pertussis (Tdap) booster vaccine. Many local pharmacies are in-network and offer vaccine services on a walk-in basis using your pharmacy benefit card. Questions about your health? UT Select participants may contact the 24/7 Nurseline at 888-315-9473. For more information about mumps and pertussis, visit the Healthyhorns site.

The University is required to provide this form by March 31, 2016. You should watch for Form 1095-C and keep it with your other important tax documents. Form 1095-C may be helpful when filing your federal income tax return, but you are not required to wait for it before filing. Learn more about Form 1095-C.
