Health Insurance

Penn State has a medical health insurance plan for all students (including medical, PA and graduate students) available for purchase through United Healthcare. You may view the policy information online at www.firststudent.com. The Penn State student health insurance plan is Affordable Care Act (ACA) compliant.

See details for graduate students and for MD and PA students. See additional information for international students here.

Some students will be automatically enrolled. Others must opt in. If you wish to enroll yourself and/or your spouse and/or dependents, or to opt out of coverage, you must review the information appropriate to your degree. This process must be completed every fall semester.

The Insurance Plan Design and Benefit Summary is available on the United HealthCare website.
