Student Health Insurance

Seminarian health insurance coverage is mandatory for all full time students at all of the ELCA seminaries, thus all full time students are required to participate or provide proof of group coverage to waive the plan.  The plan is administered through EIIA.  United Healthcare StudentResources (UHCSR) is the insurance carrier and the pharmaceutical benefits will be provided through MEDCO.  Collectively, we look forward to working with all those that enroll in the plan.

Waive the plan—to waive the plan students must possess the following insurance:  Group coverage, state funded plans and individual health coverage with an annual deductible less than $4,000 qualify as primary insurance.  High Risk or individual policies with a deductible greater than $5,000 do not qualify.  Students will need to waive online at

Preexisting Conditions
Medical expenses incurred as a result of treatment for a preexisting condition will be covered under the Seminarian Plan provided the student has been continuously insured under this policy and/or prior ELCA Seminarian's policy for a period of 12 months. If the student can show a Certificate of Continuous Coverage obtained from a previous health insurance carrier, the preexisting conditions provision is also waived.
