Student Health Services offers a lot of different care and services to meet the health care needs of our students, but does not cover hospitalization, surgery, emergency room care, medical referrals, x-rays, laboratory or other diagnostic tests, etc. Therefore, a health insurance policy for off-campus health expenses is mandatory for all students.
Students not already covered under their own or their parents’ insurance plan can purchase a range of student health insurance plans through the healthcare.gov marketplace. Students whose insurance plans offer limited benefits outside their network area (i.e. State Medicaid and HMO plans) are also encouraged to consider purchasing one of these plans. At this time, Asbury University does not offer a health insurance plan to non-international students.
International students have access to a University International Student Insurance Plan. This special group insurance policy is described in detail in a separate brochure available on the company’s website: University Student Insurance Plan where you can download a claim form, print a student ID card, or find more information about the plan. For questions about policy enrollment, email Student Accounts or call (859) 858-3511, x.2330.
Many of the services at the Health Services Clinic are free. If the student needs to be referred to a specialist, a lab or any outside doctor, the student is personally responsible for the resulting charges.
Student intercollegiate athletes have additional coverage under the University’s secondary sports insurance plan. Asbury’s Intercollegiate Athletic Insurance is an excess-only policy – after the athlete’s primary insurance company has paid its portion of medical bills, the claim will be filed for processing with FirstAgency, Inc., for reimbursement of any remaining medical expenses. If you have further questions, please email Erin Ferguson or call (859) 858-3511, x2470.
