Student Health Insurance Policy

All Mount St. Joseph University students are expected to have health insurance as required by law. Mount St. Joseph University is not responsible for the costs of treatment as a result of accident, illness, or injury. The University requires all residence hall students, student athletes and students enrolled in certain health sciences majors (e.g. Athletic Training, Nursing, Physical Therapy, Physician Assistant Studies) to provide proof of health insurance annually. The University uses a web-based portal to verify each student’s health insurance coverage.

Qualified health insurance should provide, at a minimum, coverage for the following essential health benefits within the greater Cincinnati area: Emergency services, office visits, hospitalization (e.g. surgery), and diagnostic testing (e.g. x-ray, laboratory).

Students without access to a group or family medical plan can purchase insurance coverage by accessing an online health insurance marketplace. Students who meet certain economic criteria may also be eligible for a state-based Medicaid plan. Mount St. Joseph University offers a private health insurance marketplace operated by Campus Unity Benefits. This marketplace has options for ACA compliant health insurance, short term health plans and other types of coverage (e.g. dental, vision) at competitive rates.
