Idaho State University does not require you to have health insurance, however we strongly encourage you to do so.
Health Care Reform
On March 23, 2010, the Affordable Care Act (ACA) was signed into law by President Obama. Many patients are unsure of how their insurance plans and coverage are changing or what ACA compliant means. In addition, be informed in regards to Idaho Health Care Exchanges.
Need Health Insurance Coverage?
Students should begin the process to obtain new health insurance at least 30 days prior to the expiration of the current insurance to avoid any lapse in coverage.
In addition, health insurance can be factored into personal expenses.
If you are worried about paying for health insurance, contact the Financial Aid Office at (208) 282-2756.
Students may be eligible for extended dependent coverage (up to their 26th birthday) under a parent’s health insurance plan.
State Health Insurance Exchanges:
If you do not qualify for special enrollment, short-term policies may be available to provide insurance until the next State Health Insurance Exchange open enrollment period.
If you are an international student you have many options under the International Student Organization or any other alternative that you choose. Contact a local broker for help.
Although the ISU Health Center is not at liberty to recommend plans to students, we will help direct you to different resources. If you have any questions or comments, you are welcome to contact us at (208) 282-2330.
