What We Do

We manage the university's requirement and provide options to meet it. We support students to make informed health insurance choices so they can help protect their academic progress from disruptive health care costs.

What We Offer

The SHI Benefits Plan is medical, mental health, prescription, vision and dental benefits with local, national, and international coverage. WilceCare Supplement is pre-paid illness and injury care at the Wilce Student Health Center.

Select or Waive

Each academic year students can select or waive the SHI Benefits Plan. Selection is the default. A waiver requires other adequate health insurance. Have you reviewed what you have and need?
