Annual & Fall 2021 Insurance Waive/Enroll Deadline

BGSU Student Health Insurance Program

Students are required to be covered by health insurance that provides coverage for medical and mental health in Northwest Ohio while attending BGSU and the University provides student health insurance through United HealthCare Student Resources.

The BGSU student health insurance plan is customized to offer the best coverage to our students at a competitive price. You can find the most recent rates, dates of coverage and more about the plan on the Health Plan Benefits and Cost web page

Domestic & International Student Waive/Enroll Requirements

Domestic students who are taking 8 or more credit hours on main campus will need to be covered by the student health insurance plan or WAIVE the coverage if they are covered by another health insurance plan each academic year. 

All International Students, regardless of credit hours, are required to enroll into the BGSU student health insurance plan, unless they meet one of the few exemptions.
