Students who are not covered under their parents' or guardians' health insurance plan or have no coverage of their own are encouraged to purchase health insurance. International students are required to purchase this insurance in order to attend Missouri State University. Each international student's account will be charged for required health insurance when they register for classes each semester.
A health insurance plan is available for Missouri State University students. This insurance program is underwritten by Academic Health Plans.
All registered Domestic Undergraduate students enrolled in six (6) or more credit hours on campus are eligible to enroll in the Plan. Domestic Graduate or Professional Students enrolled in the graduate or professional degree programs, taking at least one graduate level course on campus are eligible to enroll in the Plan. All students must be in good academic standing and making appropriate progress toward graduation.
All contractual agreements for those who choose to participate in this voluntary plan shall be between the insured and the underwriter. Neither the University nor Taylor Health and Wellness Center will be responsible for any costs incurred by those who participate in the plan. Students, except for international students, are NOT required to purchase their health insurance through this provider. This is available only as an option for those needing health insurance.
The student health insurance plan administrator is Academic Health Plans. See http://www.AHPCare.com/missouristate/ to enroll, obtain forms, or find more information.
