MSUM requires all undergraduates to have health insuranceThe Student Senate at MSUM adopted a policy that allows domestic students to have access to a very affordable insurance plan if you don’t have access to other coverage or wish to supplement your existing coverage (perhaps because your existing plan is an HMO from out of the area or if your plan has a high deductible). The plan selected by the University is affordable and includes many benefits. The plan is available at www.uhcsr.com, find MSUM and choose the domestic plan for the school year. You can print out the entire policy from this link; student can also pick up a hard copy of the policy at Hendrix Clinic & Counseling Center.This plan is available to undergraduate students that are enrolled for a minimum 6 on-campus credits each semester. Insurance is purchased twice a year; fall and spring/summer when students register for their classes. Insurance for spring/summer are combined and you cannot purchase them separately. Students do not have to take summer classes to be covered by the insurance plan during the summer.When students register for fall and spring classes they should see a screen asking them about health insurance. They can choose to “opt in” for the MSUM health insurance plan or “opt out” if they are covered by a different plan. They will have to enter the name of the insurance company they are covered under.
