Health Insurance

General Information

The University requires health care coverage for the purpose of limiting undue financial and academic stress related to illnesses during the academic year. A health policy will assist in meeting not only common illnesses treated at the Student Health Center or at a private physician's office, but also with the financial burden of illness and accidents involving more extensive care.

The University Insurance Committee has contracted with an insurance broker, Wells Fargo Insurance Services (WF). This group researched insurance options and presented Anthem Blue Cross Life & Health Insurance Co. as the optimal coverage for our student body. The University insurance policy through Anthem meets Health Care Reform requirements and has been contracted to include the lowest premium for your benefit; however, you may purchase any policy that has comparable coverage to the University policy. Wells Fargo facilitates our group policy with Anthem and provides customer service to our students for all insurance matters. A nominal administrative fee is added to the premium to cover University insurance-related services.

Please be advised that your student insurance plan Summary of Benefits and Coverage document is available by contacting Wells Fargo Insurance Services at (800) 853-5899.
