GOVERNING POLICIES AND PROCEDURES
SECTION: III. POSTSECONDARY AFFAIRS
SUBSECTION: P. STUDENTS

February 2015

16. Student Health Insurance

The Board’s student health insurance policy is a minimum requirement. Each institution, at its discretion, may adopt
policies and procedures more stringent than those provided herein.

a. Health Insurance Coverage Offered through the Institution
Each institution may provide the opportunity for students to purchase health insurance. Health insurance
offered through the institution shall be Affordable Care Act (ACA) compliant.

b. Mandatory Student Health Insurance
Every full‐fee paying full‐time student (for purposes of federal financial aid) attending classes in Idaho
shall be covered by an ACA compliant health insurance policy. Students without proof of health insurance
coverage shall be ineligible to enroll full‐time at an institution. Each institution shall monitor and enforce
student compliance with this policy.

i. “ACA compliant” means a health insurance policy which meets the minimum coverage requirements
classified by the ACA as “essential health benefits.” Essential health benefits include items and
services within at least the following 10 general categories: ambulatory patient services; emergency
services; hospitalization; maternity and newborn care; mental health and substance use disorder
services, including behavioral health treatment; prescription drugs; rehabilitative and habilitative
services and devices; laboratory services; preventive and wellness services and chronic disease
management; and pediatric services (including oral and vision care).

ii. Proof of Insurance. All full‐time students shall provide proof of ACA compliant health insurance
coverage. Proof of health insurance coverage shall include at least the following information: (1)
Name of health insurance carrier (2) Policy number (3) Contact information for employer, insurance
company or agent who can verify coverage (4) Attestation by the student, parent or guardian that
health insurance policy is ACA complaint. Along with proof of insurance, students shall certify
they will maintain active and continuous ACA compliant insurance coverage for the duration of their
time enrolled as a full‐time student.

iii. Temporary Insurance Coverage. A full‐time student may have a non‐ACA compliant policy before
registration for their first semester of attendance, but such a student shall sign an affidavit that
they will enroll in ACA compliant insurance by the first health insurance exchange open‐enrollment
period or the end of their first semester, whichever comes first. At no other time may a fulltime
student be enrolled without ACA compliant insurance.

iv. Non‐compliance. A student found to be out of compliance with this policy while enrolled at an
institution, shall be ineligible for full‐time enrollment in future terms (fall, spring or summer) until
insurance is obtained and proof thereof is certified; provided however, that if health insurance is
offered through an Idaho State Board of Education institution and a student is found in
noncompliance, the institution may default enroll the student into the institution’s student
health insurance plan and charge the student’s account.
