Student Health Insurance

All students attending Berea College are required to carry health insurance through the College. The policy provides primary coverage for students with no other insurance.  For those students who are covered by parental or individual plans, this mandatory College policy serves as secondary coverage. 

The insurance premium is part of the student expense budget and reflected there as a fee.

Students’ dependents may be added to the College plan at an additional premium.

Policy benefits and exclusions are explained in a brochure sent to each student along with an insurance card each term.  This card must be presented when seeking medical care, other than at Student Health Services.  The Student Health Services staff may assist with this task.  For more information visit

Prescriptions are not covered by the College health-insurance policy.
