updated 4/16/2021

Each year, Lewis & Clark reviews its student health insurance plan to ensure that students are receiving the best possible benefits at the best price. Details for the student health insurance plan for the 2021-22 academic year have been confirmed.

Plan benefits for the student health insurance plan during the 2021-22 academic year will be unchanged from plan benefits offered during the 2020-21 academic year.  PacificSource (with its Voyager network) will continue to be the insurance carrier.  The student health insurance will continue to  provide access to both a local and national provider network.

Premiums for the 2021-22 health insurance plan are listed below. Premiums are assessed twice yearly (at the beginning of fall and spring semesters), and provide students with 12 months of health insurance coverage.  

  • Undergraduate and Law* Students: $1760 per semester
  • GSEC students: $2258.50 per semester**

*The fall premium for first year law students only will be $1,784 as their insurance will become effective August 13, 2021, whereas the spring/summer premium for first-year law students will be $1,760. For all other undergraduate and law students enrolled in the student health insurance plan, fall coverage is effective on August 15, 2021.

**For students enrolled in the Graduate School of Education & Counseling, fall coverage is effective on September 1. Prorated premiums are available for GSEC students attending summer session(s).

All undergraduate and law students are automatically enrolled in and charged for the student health insurance plan.  Students in the Graduate School can opt into the plan, but are not auto-enrolled. If you are an undergraduate or law student, and have comparable health insurance coverage, you can waive enrollment in the student health insurance program. The link to the online waiver form will be available from the homepage of our student health insurance website beginning on July 8, 2021. Waivers must be submitted by the deadline of Monday September 13, 2021.

Enrollment in student health insurance for graduate (GSEC) students for fall 2021 will occur online. Enrollment will open in early August and close on Friday October 1, 2021. Click here for information on enrollment.
