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 but the fee can be waived if proof of other health insurance is provided.

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 or call 937-222-7270.
