New in 2012-2013
SOU now offers a Voluntary Student Health Insurance Plan. A Subsidy Fund exists to aid students in purchasing this insurance.
There has been a change to the Student Insurance Plans for SOU Students in 2012-2013. In compliance with the Affordable Care Act, the previously existing mandatory Basic Student Insurance Plan with a maximum of $2500 per illness or injury has canceled. Now SOU offers a voluntary Student Insurance Plan with a per illness/injury maximum of $100,000. For more information on this change, please click on the Insurance left link.
Students taking 6 or more credits (not counting online credits) can purchase the voluntary student health insurance. A subsidy fund funded by the Student Health Fee is available to subsidize the cost of health insurance for eligible students. Students wishing to be covered by the voluntary health insurance for winter term 2012 must apply by February 7, 2013. Subsidies will be awarded to eligible students on a first-come, first-served basis while funds last. For more information on the voluntary health insurance plan, or subsidy fund application and eligibility information please click on above links.
Although student health insurance has changed from a mandatory supplemental plan (Aetna) to a voluntary major medical plan (United Healthcare), it remains true: any student can access health care at the Student Health and Wellness Center regardless of your insurance status. You do not need health insurance to be seen here.
