PHSC does not require students to carry health insurance. Students who are interested in obtaining student health insurance should investigate various coverage packages and decide what best suits their individual/family needs. Insurance coverage may or may not include emergency care, outpatient medical, mental health or drug/alcohol care. Other variables may include dependent care at an additional cost. Students pay premiums and file claims directly with the insurance company that they choose. It is each student’s responsibility to make his/her decision as to coverage.
PHSC does offer a Student Assistance Program to provide support to students in dealing with personal, academic, or relationship problems. Please visit the SAP page for more information.
Students who are interested in purchasing health insurance for themselves or their dependents are encouraged to do so in a timely manner. Many student health insurance plans have a coverage period that coincides with the academic term and if insurance is not purchased early it may not be available until the next term.
Below you will find links to some private companies offering student health insurance. PHSC is not affiliated with nor does it endorse any of these companies.
