Health Insurance

The University of Michigan encourages all students to have health insurance for life’s unexpected events. If your student needs insurance coverage, the U-M Domestic Student Health Insurance Plan (DSHIP) through Blue Care Network of Michigan (BCN) has generous benefits at a very reasonable cost.  

Insurance cost for an individual student for the 2021-22 insurance plan year (coverage dates 8/24/21 – 8/23/22) is $1,929. Deadline for annual purchase is Sept. 30, 2021. Highlights of the program include: 

  • This insurance plan provides coverage with a wide array of benefits, including: clinic visits, prescription medication, annual vision exam, hospitalization, emergency care, limited dental benefits and more.
  • Annual deductible is only $100 for in-network care and $100 for out-of-network care.
  • In-network coverage is available throughout the U.S.
  • This plan is available to U-M students studying on campus and those who are studying remotely. 
  • DSHIP is available to enrolled U-M students and their spouses, domestic partners, and dependents under the age of 26 (if the student is enrolled in the plan).
