Student Health Insurance



 

IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT STUDENT HEALTH INSURANCE

All adults must carry health insurance. It is the law. All full-time students are automatically billed for the CSU Student Health Plan. You may waive the Health Plan if you complete a waiver application, documenting proof of other health insurance.

If you have health insurance in addition to what CSU offers, please call the 1-800 number on your insurance card to determine what your insurance covers and in what locations you can use it before you make the decision to waive (opt out of) the CSU Student Health Insurance Plan.

If you waive (opt out of) the CSU student health insurance plan, you will not be eligible for all Health Center (Wellness Center) services and will be personally responsible for any fees from visits to outside doctors, clinics, urgent care centers and ER’s. The CSU Health and Wellness Center does not bill other insurance.

In general, out-of-state Medicaid plans are only accepted in Ohio for emergencies and not for routine care. If you think you may be eligible for Medicaid, please contact staff in the Student Health and Wellness Center. They can direct you to expert assistance.  For assistance with health insurance enrollment options, you may also visit HelpMeEnroll.org or call 937-222-7270.

An electronic waiver application process is available May – September (Labor Day) for new and returning students who enter CSU in the Fall semester. Insurance is for an entire academic year and is billed by semester. For new and returning students who enter CSU in the Spring semester, information about the waiver application process will be provided during the admissions process.
