Insurance for Domestic Students

(International Students: See below)

Change in Student Health Insurance:

The Affordable Care Act has changed SPU’s ability to offer health insurance to our students. Unfortunately, this means there will not be a health insurance plan offered to domestic (American) undergraduates or graduate students. In accordance with the national healthcare reform, Washington State has launched the Washington Health Benefit Exchange to assist people in obtaining affordable individual health insurance. These will be individual plans, not plans offered by SPU. Below are some links to assist you in the process:

Washington Health Plan Finder

      The official site for Washington's Insurance Exchange (Marketplace)

Please note: You need to apply under your Washington address (such as your Mailstop or Physical Address where you get mail while attending SPU). As a registered student, you are considered a Washington Resident and qualify for the Washington Marketplace. However, you need to be currently residing in the State to apply (out-of-state prospective students need to wait till they have an address).
