Student Health Insurance


A new Central State University student health insurance plan will go into effect in August of the 2015-2016 academic year as a result of new healthcare laws. The annual cost is $1,630.00. You will automatically be billed for this along with other fees, but now you will have the option to waive the cost if you submit proof of other health insurance. (Other insurance includes coverage under a parent’s plan or Medicaid.)

Here are some things you can do to prepare for the changes:

  • Go to: for more information about health insurance for college students.
  • Sign up for Medicaid if you are eligible. For help, please contact certified application experts: Joseph Smith at 937-554-5076 or Carlos Morrison 937-620-3930.
  • Locate the name and policy number of other insurance and keep it in a safe place.
  • Plan for higher health care costs in your personal budget.
