HEALTH INSURANCE FOR GGU LAW STUDENTS

GGU Law does not require students to have health insurance. However, you are strongly encouraged to have coverage throughout law school. Accidents and illnesses can happen, and having insurance can help you keep your focus on law school and avoid large medical bills.

GGU's Student Health Insurance Plan is discontinued after the 2013-2014 school year to allow students to take advantage of the low-cost options available as a result of the Affordable Care Act. Students enrolled in the plan for the spring/summer 2014 term will remain covered until July 31, 2014 but will not have the option to renew. See the sections below for details about the 2013-2014 plan.

To explore insurance options see the GGU Law Student Guide to Finding Health Insurance.
