Student Health Insurance

STUDENT HEALTH INSURANCE : Health insurance is mandatory whenever you are enrolled for six or more academic credits. MSU-Northern offers comprehensive health insurance coverage to students at a reasonable rate. If a student has other coverage, a waiver must be signed and the premium will be reversed. Students without health insurance who wish to purchase it from the University must pay $1683.00 for Fall 2016 and $1683.00 for Spring Semester 2017. Payment of these two premiums results in coverage for 12 full months. NEW Spring Semester-Only rate for new students is $1963.50 (Coverage Period: 01/01/2017 – 07/31/2017). More details: Student Health Insurance Plan.

Student Insurance/Medicaid

The Montana Medicaid/HELP program and the Montana University System are working in partnership to provide student Medicaid/HELP clients with excellent medical coverage at a reasonable cost to the taxpayers. The student health insurance plan is cost-effective for a large number of Medicaid/HELP clients. When the state determines a group insurance plan to be cost effective, the Montana Medicaid/HELP client is required to enroll in the insurance program, and then apply for the Health Insurance Premium Payment (HIPP) program.

  • The HIPP program allows state Medicaid funds to be used to pay for private health insurance coverage when it is cost effective to do so.
  • The program is designed to provide additional coverage, not replace the coverage they have, with the student health insurance plan.
  • The student health insurance plan becomes the primary coverage and Medicaid/HELP as the secondary coverage.

*IMPORTANT*
Adult Medicaid/HELP clients MUST comply with Third-Party Liability programs, including the HIPP program, as a condition of keeping their Medicaid/HELP medical coverage. If they drop, or refuse, health insurance coverage that the state has determined to be cost effective, their Medicaid/HELP medical coverage may be canceled.
