Health Insurance

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

The insurance premium is part of the Student Expense budget and reflected as a fee. Financial Aid is applied to this cost, based on need, as established by the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Therefore, most students are not asked to pay the insurance premium for this required insurance.

Also see the College Health Service section for information about the administration of this policy. Students must complete all forms identifying their primary health insurance company prior to Fall registration.
