If your school offers a student health plan, it can be an easy and affordable way to get basic insurance coverage.
Even if you have access to a student health plan, you can apply for coverage through the Health Insurance Marketplace instead.
TIP If you have a student health plan, when filling out a Marketplace application choose “No” when asked if you currently have health coverage. Choose “No” even if you have a student health plan and plan to drop it when you enroll in a Marketplace plan.
Students who don’t have health insurance may have to pay a fee. There’s no special student exception to the requirement to have health insurance.
