Student Health Insurance
All students are required to carry health insurance.
We are excited to announce the availability of the 2016-17 Student Health Insurance! The 2016-17 Gustavus student health insurance program will be administered through Consolidated Health Plans (CHP). The plan will not change from 2015-16, it will still be part of the First Health Network. The plan will be effective August 1st, 2016 - July 31st, 2017. It is a very competitive plan with a $250 deductible and $2500 out of pocket maximum (for First Health Network providers). The annual premium is $1749. All students MUST choose to either 'Waive' or 'Enroll' in this plan. Those who have not done so by mid July will see a charge to their student account. Once a waiver is completed the student account will be credited.
The Gustavus Health Service accepts ALL HEALTH INSURANCE PLANS (it is the responsiblity of the student to know if the clinic is in or out of network). The Gustavus Health Service is a contracted provider with the following insurance companies: Blue Cross Blue Shield, Preferred One, Medica, Health Partners, and Minnesota Health Care Programs. If you have medical insurance from out of state, you may wish to check with your insurance plan to see if they will accept claims from Gustavus Health Service. We are unable to bill out of state medical assistance plans. If you are enrolled in an out of state medical assistance plan, you may choose to enroll in a Minnesota plan while you are living in Minnesota.
PLEASE NOTE: A 10 digit student ID number is required to 'Waive' or 'Enroll'. Please add 3 or 4 zeros to the front of your Gustavus ID to make a 10 digit ID number (i.e. Gustavus ID = 1234567, please enter 0001234567 on website).
