Health Insurance

The Student Health Center hosts a health insurance navigator on Mondays 10am-4pm to assist students in applying for ACA (Affordable Care Act, aka Obamacare). If you are medicaid eligible (making <$16,242/year), just lost your job or health insurance, or just had a baby, you don't have to wait until an enrollment period to apply.  Just bring the documentation listed below and stop by the health center during the hours listed above.

New! The Essential Plan was created for individuals making between $16,242-$23,540 a year to obtain health insurance for only $20/month! It includes doctor's visits (including specialists), urgent care or emergency room visits, tests ordered by your doctor, prescription drugs and inpatient and outpatient care at a hospital.
