Ohio University requires all students enrolled in Athens credit hours to maintain an active health insurance policy. The Student Health Insurance Policy is a 1-year commercial policy, and is re-negotiated each academic year. The Student Health Insurance Policy is provided by United Healthcare Student Resources, and offers Domestic, International, and Regional Campus students, as well as their dependents, a comprehensive commercial health insurance policy at an affordable cost. The policy exceeds the Affordable Care Act minimum essential health benefits and State mandates. The policy has low out of pocket expenses and offers coverage specifically tailored to Ohio University student needs.
