Student Health Plan

Insurance Requirements

According to BYU-Idaho policy all students are required to have adequate medical coverage in the Rexburg area as long as they have continuing student status. This includes all students off-track. Every semester, at the time of class registration, students will be asked to if they would like to be on the Student Health Plan or if they have an acceptable substitute or if they have acceptable private insurance.

This policy can be viewed here.

Acceptable substitutes include:

Dropping the Student Health Plan

If you have an acceptable substitute policy you can be withdrawn from the Student Health Plan by filling out the online form at the time of registration. If this time has passed you can drop the Student Health Plan by filling out a Student Health Plan Waiver here. After you have completed the form please fax, mail or drop off in person to the Student Health Center. Click here for our contact information.

Considering the Student Health Plan?

Currently, the Student Health Plan costs:

per person per semester

per family per semester

If the family consists of two fulltime students the best option is to get two individual plans.

Coverage starts the first day of classes for the given semester and will cover the student until midnight of the day before the next semester’s classes begin. If the Student Health Plan is purchased for the Spring semester the 7-week break is included in the $528 semester charge at no additional cost.

Highlighted Items:

  • $10 charge for all covered benefits in a single appointment, excluding prescriptions
  • $25 co-pay if seen outside of the BYU-I Student Health Center
  • $0 Deductible at the BYU-I Student Health Center
  • $500 Deductible if seen at other facilities (National Average is $1,300)
  • Full-Medical Coverage Nationwide

For a full list of benefits consult the DMBA Handbook that can be found here.
