Insurance Information

Please be sure you have your current health insurance information with you here at school (health insurance card or other document with the name of insurance, policy number, policy holder, and the insurance company's claims address.) We will ask you for this information when you come in for an appointment.

For students who need insurance, you have several options: You can go to Access Health CT to find out what insurance options are available in the Connecticut insurance exchange marketplace, or you can call 1(855) 354-2428. Through the Access Health CT enrollment portal or contact center, you can find out if you are eligible for either no-cost coverage under Medicaid (enrollment in Medicaid is open year-round), or for tax credits for private insurance plans on the exchange. For students who are not Connecticut residents, you can look for insurance options at Healthcare.gov.

 

Please note that all full time students at Eastern, regardless of what health insurance they have, will continue to be automatically covered, throughout the 12 month-year, under an accident insurance policy. The cost of this accident policy, which covers accidents both on and off campus, is included in the general University fee each full time student pays. This accident policy is an excess or secondary policy meaning the insurance plan will pay only accident-related costs that are not covered by a student's other (primary) health insurance policy. This may interfere with your own health coverage.
