Health Insurance for Students

Tuition, books, rent, food, fun . . . health insurance? With all the things you have to pay for in college, paying for student health insurance is probably last on your list. And if you're a Foreign Exchange student you face even more unique challenges. But what's last on your list could be the first thing to put you at serious financial risk.

Benefitsphere offers a variety of health insurance plans to meet the needs of students in different circumstances. Just select the carrier and coverage that best suits your situation, review the product highlights, get a quote and buy online.

Domestic Students
Coverage for full and part-time students is provided by three of the country's foremost carriers. These plans offer a great alternative for students who are not eligible or interested in school sponsored plans. They are available to most students maintaining full or part-time status at a college or university in the United States.

Foreign Exchange Students
Coverage for foreign exchange students is available through two of the top carriers in the country. These are exceptional plans for U.S. students studying abroad, foreign students studying in the U.S., or anyone traveling outside their home country for as little as 2 weeks to up to 2 years.


Ideal for students who are:

No longer covered as a dependent under their parent's plan

Attending school outside an HMO or PPO region

Needing insurance while studying abroad

Required to have coverage but choose not to participate in a college-sponsored plan

Finding a traditional individual medical or other current coverage to be too expensive

Plus, we provide coverage for part time students and graduating seniors in need of coverage while looking for work or taking time off to travel the world.
