Student Health Insurance

All University of St. Thomas students are required to carry health insurance coverage. Most St. Thomas students can obtain coverage through age 26 under health care policies purchased by their parents. Students who do not have health insurance may purchase policies through a Health Insurance Marketplace.

The Affordable Care Act provides tax credits and subsidies for qualified individuals to help pay for insurance purchased in the Marketplace.
