Health problems happen. Unexpected health care expenses such as those associated with unexpected illness, accidents, or mental health care can destabilize a student's financial situation and derail his/her progress toward a degree. These potential barriers to attendance and degree completion are reduced when students have health insurance.
The following web site can help with insurance decisions: www.gettingcovered.org/Toolkit
All full-time undergraduate students and athletes attending classes at the Concordia Portland campus are required to have comprehensive health insurance coverage. Students must show proof of health insurance coverage by completing an online waiver form or must purchase the Basic Injury and Sickness Insurance Plan through USI Northwest (USI).
Graduate and Boise Law School students taking 6 or more credit hours (including online) are eligible to purchase this plan on a voluntary basis. Dependents of insured students are eligible to purchase this plan on a voluntary basis for the same period as the student.
Insurance and enrollment information for the 2015-16 academic year is expected to be available here by mid-July, 2015.
