Insurance Information

Health Insurance

Idaho State University does not require you to have health insurance, however we strongly encourage you to do so.

Need Health Insurance Coverage?

Students should begin the process to obtain new health insurance at least 30 days prior to the expiration of the current insurance to avoid any lapse in coverage.

In addition, health insurance can be factored into personal expenses.

Students may be eligible for extended dependent coverage (up to their 26th birthday) under a parent’s health insurance plan.

For Free or low-cost medical benefits for adults with a variety of health needs, see Idaho Medicaid.

State Health Insurance Exchanges:

For Idaho check yourhealthidaho.org or for other states www.healthcare.gov.

If you do not qualify for special enrollment, short-term policies may be available to provide insurance until the next State Health Insurance Exchange open enrollment period.

You may contact a local broker for information and for plans available.

If you are an international student you have many options under International Student Organization or any other alternative that you choose. Contact a local broker for help.

Although the ISU Health Center is not at liberty to recommend plans to students, we will help direct you to different resources. If you have any questions or comments, you are welcome to contact us at (208) 282-2330.
