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.
To explore insurance options see the GGU Law Student Guide to Finding Health Insurance.
2013 - 2014 STUDENT HEALTH INSURANCE HOLDERS
CLAIMS, BENEFITS & CONTINUATION PLAN
GGU's mandatory Student Health Insurance Plan was 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. Continuing students enrolled in the plan for the spring/summer 2014 term remained covered until July 31, 2014 but did not have the option to renew. See the links below for details about the 2013-2014 plan.
If you were enrolled in the 2013-2014 GGU Student Health Insurance Plan and have a claim or benefit question, or if you are a recent graduate and would like to extend your coverage*, please contact:
Kaiser Permanente Member Services
*Please note that extension of coverage plans for graduates that are offered through Kaiser Permanente are not associated with Golden Gate University.
2014 - 2015 WELLS FARGO BROKERED INSURANCE PLAN
Wells Fargo Insurance Services, the company that brokered GGU's 2013-2014 Student Health Insurance Plan (SHIP), has made a plan available to GGU School of Law students for the 2014-2015 school year. This plan, offered through Kaiser Permanente, is similar in benefits to the 2013-2014 SHIP, but higher in price. Although this plan is being offered to GGU Law Students, Golden Gate University School of Law has no financial, administrative or other involvement in the plan. The standard financial aid budget does not include an automatic allowance to cover the cost of the premiums for this or any other health insurance plan. Students who don't already have coverage are encouraged to see if similar, but less expensive plans are available though Covered California or other sources before enrolling in the Wells Fargo plan. It is unlikely that this plan will be extended beyond the 2014-2015 school year.
For additional details including brochures, cost, benefits and the Summary of Benefits and Coverage document, visit the Wells Fargo Insurance Services website and enter "Golden Gate University School of Law" under the "Search by School" heading. Brochures are also available in the Law Student Services office. Students who choose to participate in this plan enroll directly with Wells Fargo Insurance Services. All inquiries about the plan should be directed to Wells Fargo Insurance Services and/or Kaiser Permanente.
