Health Insurance

University policy mandates that all students maintain health insurance in order to avoid potentially difficult and costly medical situations and to ensure that medical services outside the University Health Center are covered.  Wesleyan University contributes a portion of the health insurance premium for graduate students who receive a stipend. Graduate students who do not receive a stipend are responsible for the total premium.  Wesleyan provides the following options for health insurance coverage:

  1. Gallagher/Koster: Please see the Gallagher/Koster web site for policy information and rates:  https://www.gallagherstudent.com .  Graduate students selecting this plan are responsible for enrolling by August 15, 2014. For a summary of coverage click here for the Wesleyan Brochure on Student Insurance.
