I need to purchase Health Insurance
FSU has partnered with United Health Care Student Resources (UHCSR) to provide our main campus students and their dependents with a comprehensive and cost-effective insurance option to meet the insurance requirement for attendance at FSU.
The policy is a gold-equivalent PPO plan that is widely accepted nationally through the United Choice Plus Network and provides unlimited medical and prescription benefits. Students covered by an HMO that does not include Leon County or a plan without a local network are encouraged to contact their insurance company for options or to purchase the UHCSR plan, which has a strong presence in Tallahassee, including access to a comprehensive network of specialists. If you are an international student studying on an F or J visa, the plan offers the required Evacuation and Repatriation coverage.
This policy can be used anywhere that accepts United Choice Plus, but when used at the Student Health Center (UHS) to see a UHS provider, or at a local urgent care clinic, the co-insurance and deductibles are waived for this plan leaving you with the lowest out-of-pocket cost. Additionally, you will have unlimited no-cost access to a physician day or night via HealthiestYou, UHCSR’s telemedicine service.

Health Insurance Options
Mandatory Health Insurance does not mean that a student must enroll in the FSU sponsored student health insurance plan; it means a student must show evidence of a creditable coverage health insurance.
Enrolling in the FSU sponsored plan is one way to meet that requirement. Students are encouraged to compare the plan offered against other options in the market, and we are confident you will find the FSU sponsored plan to be a better value. Before purchasing an insurance policy, please review the coverage very carefully. As a general rule, the cheaper the plan the lesser the benefits and the higher the out-of-pocket costs. In addition, the extent of the insurance carrier's network is an important consideration. Always check their website for a list of local providers, including specialist.
