2020-21 Student Health Insurance provided by United Healthcare Student Resources

Student Health Insurance will begin August 1, 2020 and go through July 31, 2021. The plan will be the same as in 2019-20 (see Summary Flyer and/or Complete Brochure) with additional new benefits including telehealth and teletherapy. The cost will be $2289 annually, billed to your student account. International students are automatically enrolled in this policy. Domestic students have the option to waive coverage if they have other comprehensive medical coverage in the state of Minnesota for the academic year. The waiver period will end on September 21, 2020. Any student who does not complete the waiver process by September 21, 2020 will be automatically enrolled. For domestic students who intend to enroll, please do so below so that you will have full access to coverage beginning August 1, 2020. Students who have not waived by mid-July will see a charge on their August student account statement. That charge will be credited once a waiver has been completed. No credits will be given after September 21, 2020.

Please note that all services rendered in the Health Service will be covered at 100% by this plan (deductible and co-pays will be waived).

The waiver and enrollment system is now open. If you have comprehensive health insurance that will cover you during the 2020-2021 academic year you can waive or enroll in the school policy by following the link below. Please email the Health Service with any specific questions at health-service@gustavus.edu.

The Gustavus Health Service accepts ALL HEALTH INSURANCE PLANS (it is the responsibility 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, United HealthCare 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.
