Costs & Coverage
The cost of the insurance premium depends on the choice of plan, the duration of coverage and the number of family members covered. If you include dependents on your plan, you must first be enrolled in your own plan. Then, you must complete a dependent verification process as part of your enrollment to determine eligibility.
Dates of Coverage
If you enroll in the insurance policy through the Office of Cashiers or through myZou and the premium is added to your student account, your first payment will be due when your first University bill is due.
To enroll a dependent into the student medical insurance coverage, you need to be enrolled in the student insurance first via the Office of the Cashiers or MyZou, and enroll your dependents on the Anthem website. The dependent insurance premium is not subsidized.
MU Student Health Fee
The Student Health Center is available to all full-time students, and the mandatory student health fee is automatically charged to accounts of graduate students taking at least seven hours of courses.
Part-time graduate students who do not want to use the Student Health Center and do not pay the student health fee can enroll in the insurance policy but will pay a higher deductible.
The Student Health Center is a provider for the insurance plan and also maintains a list of other participating providers for the insurance plan.
Coverage for Children
If you cannot afford the premium the insurance plan that provides coverage for your children, you may choose state coverage. The State of Missouri offers a Health Insurance Program for Children, entitled MC + for Kids for low-income families who do not have access to affordable health insurance. This program does not count student loans, grants, work-study, fellowships, or parental support as income to meet the low-income eligibility requirement.
Coverage for Traveling Internationally
Anthem has partnered with GeoBlue for International Travel Coverage. You will need to register using the following Group Access Code: GTB9999ACM28 when registering.
