Student Health Plan and New Federal Requirements

BYU-Idaho is pleased to continue offering the Student Health Plan. The Student Health Plan has not changed and we anticipate it will continue to adequately meet the majority of our students' needs. All matriculated students are required to have health insurance coverage while attending the university.

The following are allowable health insurance coverage options:

  • BYU-Idaho Student Health Plan
  • A parent's policy that provides coverage in the Rexburg area
  • Group insurance through you or your spouse's employer that provides coverage in the Rexburg area
  • Medicare or Idaho full coverage Medicaid
  • An Affordable Care Act compliant plan that provides coverage in the Rexburg area

We understand there has been confusion due to the changes in federal law referred to as the Affordable Care Act. We encourage you to consult with your parents and or a professional tax advisor for counsel. You can also find information at the following link:

We encourage you to carefully review the terms of any plan, including deductible requirements. Again, please consider discussing your plan with a parent or qualified professional to assist you in making a decision about your health coverage.
