Student Health Insurance

Minnesota State College and Universities no longer offers health insurance for domestic students.

There are two Minnesota Health Care Programs Minnesota State students may qualify for due to their income status, they are Medical Assistance (MA) or MinnesotaCare. Students currently enrolled in Medical Assistance or MinnesotaCare programs will automatically be moved to MNsure as part of their renewal process. If a student is not currently enrolled in one of these programs and would like to know if they qualify for either of them, their eligibility status will automatically be reviewed when they apply for coverage through MNsure. Additional information regarding Medical Assistance or MinnesotaCare can be found at

MNsure has numerous resources available on their website for students to help navigate their system as well as address any health insurance specific questions. (
