Student Insurance Benefits
Valparaiso University is interested in promoting good health practices as well as preventing sickness and accidents among students. The University does not assume financial responsibility for a student in case of illness or accident. The University maintains the Student Health Center for the treatment of illnesses and minor accidents. Students are responsible for the costs of such treatment if it is not covered by their medical plan.
Valpo requires students to carry health insurance while attending the University. This policy protects a family’s investment should unexpected medical issues arise. We also know that people seek healthcare at earlier stages when they possess insurance. Early assessment and treatment are particularly important in a highly residential environment such as our campus.
Student Health Insurance 2021-2022
The sponsored policy is with Anthem Student Advantage and the policy provides our students access to a wide national network of providers and facilities when care is necessary outside of the plan requirements.
With both plans, when students utilize Valparaiso University Health Center on campus, the co-pay and deductible are waived, and covered services such as physician visits, in-house lab tests, medications, and immunizations are generally covered at 100%. Students find this to be a very convenient and cost-efficient way to meet their health care needs while attending Valpo. Any necessary specialty care is coordinated with the assistance of Health Center.
All full-time graduate students taking 9 or more credit hours, full-time undergraduate students taking 12 or more credit hours, DARC students (approved by AARC) and all CONHP are automatically enrolled in this insurance plan at registration, unless proof of comparable coverage is furnished. New students beginning full-time enrollment during the summer who are taking six or more credit hours per summer term are eligible to enroll in this insurance plan. Eligible students who do enroll may also insure their dependents.
- Health insurance information is required annually for all new and returning undergraduates and graduate students. Instructions and reminders are sent via students’ University email accounts and home address. If students have existing health insurance, simply enter the information to complete the process. If students want to voluntarily enroll in the University’s sponsored program, they may do so during the waiver period.
- Students who do NOT waive out will automatically be enrolled in and billed for the University-sponsored plan for the full annual cost of the plan.
- During the waiver period, students may access the waiver site through AHP to complete and submit a Waiver Request or to voluntarily enroll in the University-sponsored plan.
