Health Insurance

Mandatory Health Insurance

During the 2012-13 academic year, Long Island University has partnered with Gallagher Koster to develop a cost-effective Student Health Insurance Plan that provides our students and families with robust medical coverage at school, back home, and while traveling or studying abroad (through On Call Travel Assistance Services, click here for more information). The 2012-13 Plan complies with Health Care Reform and offers students and their dependents access to a network of doctors, hospitals, and pharmacies throughout the country, benefit maximums of $100,000 per condition per policy year, elimination of internal limits on essential benefits, improved prescription drug benefits, and coverage for preexisting conditions.

The Student Health Insurance Plan is available to any and all students enrolled and registered in degree-granting programs at Long Island University. Students participating in programs at the University that require foreign travel are mandated to enroll in the Plan, even if they have comparable coverage. Students who enter during the Spring and Summer terms can also participate in the plan with shorter coverage periods, reduced rates, and specific enrollment/waiver deadlines.

Beginning on August 15th, students can go to and click on the "Student Health Insurance" link from the Student Center Home Page to voluntarily enroll in the Plan, print temporary ID cards, and file or check claims. Coverage begins on August 15, 2012, which represents the start of the plan year, and extends through August 14, 2013. You can also visit the Gallagher Koster website directly by clicking here.
