Health insurance is available to everyone! It is also required by law. Insurance protects you from unexpected financial costs of health care and you now have to pay a fee if you are not covered. Check out HealthCare.gov to learn more about these policies and your options. Insurers are also required by law to cover the costs of important health care services, such as wellness visits, prescription drug costs, obstetric and gynecologic services, health care required for a pre-existing condition and more. Detroit Mercy students have several options for coverage.
Student Health Insurance
Private Health Insurance
If your parent has insurance through an employer or the Health Insurance Marketplace, you can remain on their insurance until age 26. You may also be eligible for health insurance if you work full time. Check with your employer to find out what is available to you.
The Wellness Center does not currently accept private insurance. All services at the Wellness Center are provided at affordable prices.
Health Insurance Marketplace
There is no need to worry if you do not have insurance through your parent or employer. Health insurance is available through the Marketplace. There is a wide variety of coverage options to fit your budget. You may also be eligible for a discount based on your income. Check out the website or call the Wellness Center if you have questions at 313-993-1185.
