Parsons Student Health Ctr | Student Health Insurance
All students are strongly encouraged to have health insurance. Parsons Student Health Center requests that each student provide a copy of their insurance card with the Health History form. Most Centre students have health insurance through a family member’s plan. Under the Affordable Care Act, if a parent’s health insurance plan covers children, the parent can add or keep the child on their policy until they turn 26 years old. See www.healthcare.gov for more information. Individual health insurance policies are available from private insurers. There are many options for young adults. The following websites may be helpful in starting a search for affordable health care: www.acsa.com (American College Student Association) and www.collegiaterisk.com (Collegiate Risk Management). These companies offer domestic as well as international policies. They also offer additional benefits such as vision insurance, dental insurance, a nurse line, and more.
