Protect Yourself and Your Family with Affordable Supplemental Coverage.
Our dental and vision discount plans, short-term health insurance, and individual/family plans are designed to align with your needs and budget and offer you a range of coverage options, quality care, and easy-to-use tools and services.
Important Note: These plans should only be purchased if you are not eligible for the coverage provided by the college or university.
Individual International &
Travel Insurance Plans
Ascension partners with HTH Worldwide to offer affordable and comprehensive coverage for international inbound college students who do not have coverage through their U.S. college or university. We also provide coverage for domestic U.S. students who are studying and/or traveling abroad.
These plans are offered only for students and scholars who are not eligible for their school-sponsored plan.
To access the HTH Worldwide website and enroll online, please visit the HTH website here.
Individual & Family Health Plans
Anthem (BlueCross/BlueShield) offers students individual and family health-insurance plans. These plans do not replace your school-sponsored health plan and may not meet all the coverage requirements of your school. Before enrolling in this plan, you should first exhaust all options offered under your school-sponsored health plan.
Many Student Health Insurance Plans (SHIPs) now include dental (and vision) benefits for covered persons under age 19 (students become ineligible the day of their 19th birthday).
Check your school’s SHIP coverage to determine if these benefits are already included in your plan (click on Find Your School and then select your college or university from the drop-down list to view your plan brochure).
If your student/scholar or individual health program does not contain coverage for preventative & routine dental care, protect your smile by purchasing one of the plans listed below.
