Student Insurance Overview

Meharry Medical College requires that all registered students have health insurance or purchase the Meharry Medical College sponsored group plan. Students must be officially enrolled in a degree program at Meharry Medical College to be eligible for the student insurance plan.  One of the following options is mandatory for all Meharry students:

  • On a parent's or spouse's health insurance policy
  • Individual, private, or group health insurance policy*
  • Group policy offered by Meharry Medical College

*The plan must meet the waiver requirements listed in the student insurance waiver information section. Please contact the Office of Student Life via email to studentinsurance@mmc.edu or by phone at (615) 327-6792 if you have questions/concerns that are not addressed here.

Student Insurance Policy & Procedure

Please note that the Meharry Medical College Group Student Insurance Plan includes medical, vision and dental coverage. If you enroll in the plan, you will get all three and if you waive the coverage, you waive all three. Coverage plans cannot be purchased separately.

2015 - 2016 Student Insurance Rates
Because of plan design changes and health care reform, a tier was added to separate those covering one child vs. multiple children. Students with dependents are encouraged to view options through the Health Insurance Market Place via HealthCare.gov. The Office of Student Life is looking to offer an application for insurance assistance to those with dependents. More information will follow.
