Student Health Plan

Student Health Plan for 2019-20

Because your health is key to achieving academic success, The University of Toledo offers students ready access to healthcare coverage and a full line of health services conveniently located on our campuses.

For 2019-20, UToledo is pleased to offer our undergraduate and graduate students the Student Health Plan – available through the University and administered by Payer Fusion, LLC

All students should have healthcare coverage and may choose to (1) remain on their employer’s plan or their parent’s plan, (2) be covered by the Student Health Plan or (3) purchase a commercial plan through the Affordable Care Act marketplace.

When compared to other health plans, the Student Health Plan provides excellent levels of healthcare coverage at competitive rates.

This website provides you with details about (1) the Student Health Plan, (2) healthcare plan definitions you may find helpful to understand your coverage and (3) UToledo’s many on-site healthcare services and facilities, plus other local healthcare resources.

ENROLLMENT DEADLINE

The enrollment period for fall semester 2019 runs through Monday, Sept. 30

If you are a student mandated to have healthcare coverage and so are automatically enrolled in the Student Health Plan (refer to Who is Eligible? below), you may waive coverage by providing proof of coverage by a comparable plan. The deadline to waive coverage also is Monday, Sept. 30.

WHO IS ELIGIBLE?

All undergraduate and graduate students enrolled at The University of Toledo may enroll in the Student Health Plan. 

 You are mandated to be automatically enrolled in this plan – and the fee assessed to your UToledo student account – if you are:

  • An international student holding a J-1 visa,
  • A student-athlete, or 
  • In a health-related program, such as medicine, nursing, pharmacy or an allied health field.

The Student Health Plan meets the J1 visa requirements set forth by the U.S. Department of State, the individual mandate for healthcare coverage and the minimum essential coverage required by the Affordable Care Act.

If you are mandated to be covered by the Student Health Plan but are covered by a comparable plan, review Waiving Coverage.

The Student Health Plan covers much, if not all, of the costs for your healthcare needs.

The plan covers (in part or in full) expenses such as …

  • On-campus student health center visits;
  • Doctor’s exams, including OB/Gyn care;
  • Therapy sessions with a behavioral healthcare professional;
