Student Health Insurance
In an effort to address the health insurance needs of our students, Galveston College has assembled a list of helpful resource links to assist our students in their search for affordable healthcare. According to college policy, students enrolled in Galveston College classes that meet on campus or who live in campus housing are required to carry health insurance for themselves during their time of attendance.
Although the college is not responsible for any medical expenses incurred by students while on campus or at college-sponsored activities, we are providing contacts to assist students with purchasing health insurance through private insurance companies. We highly advise students to carefully study the specific terms of any healthcare policy before purchasing coverage.
Three ways U. S. residents may search for affordable insurance are as follows:
- US Affordable Care Act
- Texas Student Health Insurance
- Search the internet for “student health insurance” or search by
insurancecompany (Blue Cross/Blue Shield, Aetna, United Health Care, or one with which you are already familiar) to see what options you have for student health care coverage
International students who will be certified by Galveston College for an F or J visa during their studies at the college must have a health insurance policy that meets minimum standards. See International Student Health Insurance for more detailed information and links.
