Health Insurance

General Information

In order to limit undue financial and academic stress related to illnesses during the academic year, the university requires students to carry U.S based health care coverage. The University Insurance Committee is contracted with an insurance broker who researched insurance options and presented Anthem Blue Cross Life & Health Insurance Co. as the optimal coverage for our student body. This Student Health Insurance Policy (SHIP) through Anthem Blue Cross meets Health Care Reform requirements, has been contracted to include the lowest premium for your benefit, and may be used to meet the university's health care coverage requirement. You may purchase any policy that has comparable coverage to SHIP but are required to provide proof of your health care coverage through the online waiver system.

Our broker facilitates our Student Health Insurance Plan (SHIP) with Anthem Blue Cross 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 SHIP Summary of Benefits and Coverage document is available by contacting our broker at (800) 853-5899.
