Student Health Insurance
Muskingum University's Student Health Insurance
Beginning in 2013, changes to health insurance from the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) made the cost of the insurance program previously offered to full-time undergraduates prohibitively expensive, so the University has ceased this program.
The University still offers an insurance plan to its international students. The international plan complies with INS requirements. All international students are required to purchase the insurance.
Information about the program is available in the brochure below or at: www.studentinsurance.com
Many students will be able to obtain (or maintain) coverage on their parents insurance through the age of 26. Other students who wish to purchase health insurance will have to do so independently. Information is available from many insurance agents. You can also contact Leonard Insurances Student Division at 800-451-1904. Certain independent students and familes with lower income may qualify for Ohio Medicaid. This coverage is available for free to those who meet the income criteria. Information is available through the Ohio Department of Job & Family Services.
The University maintains a Wellness Center for the service of our full-time tradtional undergraduates. Information about the services available is on their web page.
