The Affordable Health Care Act requires that everyone has health insurance and provides access to coverage. With this change to the law, Concordia University also expects that all students carry health insurance. It is the student’s responsibility to provide payment or insurance for any physical or mental health medical needs.
Concordia University assumes no liability for student illness or injury and no responsibility for medical bills and/or services contracted for by students. It is the responsibility of the student to carry the insurance card at all times to have available in case of illness or injury.
Students and families that are concerned about health insurance should know that the Affordable Care Act requires everyone to have health insurance. There are many options available to students, including, being covered on their parent’s policy until age 26 or purchasing coverage through an insurance exchange. The insurance exchange is an online resource where you can find information about different health plans and coverage. Healthcare.gov is the federal insurance exchange. Residents of Minnesota can look under MNsure.org where you can access the cost for each plan and enroll or find out whether you qualify for financial assistance based on annual income.
