The Affordable Care Act


The Affordable Care Act, also referred to as Obama Care, can be confusing to understand and navigate. We have provided information on the EMU Student Policy, as well as, resource to other helpful site. We encourage all students to take the time to review their options so that they can find a plan that best suits their needs.

EMU Offers a Student Health Insurance Policy

Student Insurance is a policy covering accidents and injuries available to students at Eastern Michigan University. It includes any treatments necessary and reasonable, including those that require referrals to specialists outside of University Health Services. Patients with Student Insurance are responsible for a small co-payment for visits and prescribed medications. University Health Services staff submit charges to and are reimbursed directly by the insurance company. Patients receive itemized receipts for all visits.

The policy also provides a great deal of free services for students including an annual preventative visit, pertinent laboratory testing, immunizations and some prescription.

We are insured through UnitedHeatlhcare StudentResources - you can view the policy brochure, application, forms, purchase the policy and create an account all through their web site. Please call our insurance specialist, 734.487.3048, if you have any other questions.
