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.

If you have lost your health insurance coverage, please review the 'Qualifying Life Events' section at: to determine if you are eligible for mid-year enrollment.
