Insurance

Insurance: Domestic students

Washington state offers the Washington Health Benefit Exchange to help state residents obtain affordable individual health insurance. As a student, you are considered a Washington resident and qualify for the Washington marketplace.

Remember: You must apply under your Washington address (i.e., your mailstop or physical Washington mailing address). Out-of-state prospective students must wait till they have a campus, or in-state, address.

We recommended that all students carry health insurance and verify coverage in Washington state.
