Low-Cost Student Health Insurance

The student health plan offers affordable medical coverage for both undergraduate and graduate students.

  • FAST next-day coverage
  • NO network restrictions — even if you’re out of state
  • Take your coverage with you when you graduate or transfer
  • 10-day free-look period to make sure the plan is right for you
  • Get up to $1 million in coverage

School health plans can be costly and limited in coverage with high deductibles..

Parents, if you’re keeping your college-aged kids on your own health plan, you may be paying higher premiums than necessary. And if your kids are going to school out of state, you can end up paying higher out-of-network costs and deductibles.

Our student health insurance program allows students to go to any doctor, any hospital, without any costly out-of-state or out-of-network expenses. And unlike some school plans, students can be covered all year, not just during the semester.

  • FAST next-day coverage
  • Save as much as 50% over COBRA*
  • Choose from 30-day to 12-month plans
  • Get up to $2 million in coverage
