MSU Denver Student Health Insurance


The MSU Denver Student Health Insurance Plan (SHIP) is uniquely designed for MSU Denver students and meets the MSU Denver Insurance requirements.

SHIP gives you the coverage you need being a student, including reputable hospitals, doctors, specialists and behavioral healthcare. In addition, SHIP provides support to make the healthcare process easier to understand with online tools, discount programs, and people you can talk to when you have to make important decisions, such as worldwide travel assistance. 

Student Health Insurance Requirement

For students taking 9 or more credits during the Fall or Spring Semester, there is a Domestic Health Insurance Requirement and International Health Insurance Requirement. To meet this requirement, students taking 9 or more credits are automatically enrolled in the Student Health Insurance Plan. Students who are already insured by a compliant outside health insurance plan must submit an online health insurance waiver by the deadline each semester to avoid automatic enrollment and being charged for the SHIP premium. 

Accessing Care

If you decide to stay insured by SHIP, it’s helpful to read and understand Accessing Healthcare on SHIP.  There are a number of benefits included the SHIP plan.  Some of those include access to hundreds of hospitals and medical offices in Colorado and nationwide, 100% coverage for services received at the Health Center at Auraria, as well as 24/7 access to telehealth and telebehavioral health care.

It’s important to understand the requirement, assess the SHIP Benefits and know the Coverage Dates, Premiums & Deadlines so you can be informed about the Insurance Plan. There are also Special Coverages for Summer, Graduating and Graduate Students.

Additional Information

If you decide to opt-out of SHIP, make sure that you read and understand the Opt-Out Waiver Instructions and the Waiver Requirement Information on the Domestic Health Insurance Requirement page or International Health Insurance Requirement.

If you have any questions you can refer to SHIP FAQ’s or contact the MSU Denver Student Insurance office for more information.
