All medical students are required to have health insurance as a condition of their enrollment in the medical school. Following the lead of many other medical schools across the country, the medical school has negotiated a comprehensive group health plan on behalf of our students and has made it mandatory at a reasonable price. This policy, through Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan, is mandatory because we believe it to be the best value available in terms of the benefits package for the premium charged.
The benefits have been adjusted each year to meet the needs of students based on student input through the Student Senate. The benefits include adult immunizations approved by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. All students will be enrolled in the Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan Group Health Benefits Plan unless they are eligible for a waiver. Our insurance broker is Michael Vincent and our Coordinator for Affiliation Agreements & Health Insurance is Kiara Scott.
