It is important that students carry health insurance coverage. Many students have, or can obtain, health coverage through a parent’s or guardian’s policy. All students should:
- Remain or enroll under a parent/guardian policy (where feasible) or;
- Use an employer’s policy (where feasible), or;
- Purchase an individual health insurance policy
There are many individual health insurance policy options. Students should select a policy that best meets their individual needs, preferences, and budget. Therefore, Puget Sound cannot recommend any particular individual policy for all students. Students and/or parents should research options where coverage applies to their home state and Washington.
Students and/or parents also can access multiple individual policy options through eHealthInsurance.com or www.wahealthplanfinder.org.
Students needing to purchase individual health coverage are encouraged to commence research immediately.
