2015-2016 Student Health Insurance Information

Rockhurst University has negotiated an affordable and comprehensive health care plan for our students and their dependents. The Rockhurst health insurance plan, administered by Summit America, and underwritten by Nationwide Life Insurance Company, is a great way to address both routine health care needs as well as receive adequate care during periods of medical crisis.

The plan is required for all full-time undergraduate students (12 hours or more) and graduate students (9 hours or more) unless proof of current health insurance coverage is supplied to Health Services by the waiver deadline of August 28, 2015, for the fall semester. The insurance is voluntary for all other students including accelerated option, Executive MBA, DO/MBA, MBA/PHY, DPT/MBA, part-time graduate/undergraduate, and post-baccalaureate students. Please check our FAQs for cost and other important information.
