SHIP Benefits

The MSU Denver Student Health Insurance Plan (SHIP) provides comprehensive coverage on campus, in the surrounding community and nationally. The cost of SHIP is the same no matter how old you are, where you live or what your personal risk factors are. It is available to undocumented students who are not eligible to purchase insurance through Colorado’s insurance market. In addition, SHIP does not require the completion of an application or health history form. 

Below you’ll find the top benefit features when enrolled in the MSU Denver Student Health Insurance Plan. SHIP members decide where to get their care, either on campus at the Health Center at Auraria or with community providers listed on the UnitedHealthcare Choice Plus network. Members may decide to use both options for complete comprehensive care.
