Student Health Insurance Plan

Student Health Insurance Requirements and Plans

All UToledo students are required to have health insurance. The University of Toledo has partnered with Anthem Student Advantage to provide students with medical and prescription drug coverage for the 2021-22 academic year.

UToledo automatically enrolls the following students in the student health insurance plan and assesses a fee to your student account:

  • All domestic undergraduate students registered for 6 or more credit hours per term
  • All domestic graduate students registered for 6 or more credit hours per term
  • All international students registered for 1 or more credit hours per term
  • All students who participate in patient care and are required by their program to have health insurance

You may waive the health insurance coverage if you have coverage under another plan as long as you submit your waiver by the deadline.

If you don’t waive the insurance by the deadline, you will be enrolled in UToledo’s student medical and prescription drug insurance plan. Anthem will automatically send you relevant paperwork and an insurance card.

This student health insurance plan enrollment model is a best practice in Ohio. It has allowed UToledo to negotiate lower premiums with Anthem Student Advantage.

Degree-seeking domestic students taking less than 6 credit hours per term and eligible dependents of all enrolled students may voluntarily enroll in the student health insurance plan directly with Anthem Student Advantage.

How to Waive Student Health Insurance Plan
