The Lehigh University Student Health and Wellness Center recommends ALL students be covered by health insurance to cover services that may not be available at the Health Center.
Lehigh University sponsors a low cost insurance plan designed to complement the services offered at the University Health Center. Information about this plan is available through the Bursar's Office at 610-758-3160 or by visiting University Health Plans, Inc. The Bursar's office mails information about the plan to students each summer. Undergraduate students who do not wish to purchase the University Health plans policy must waive it before the start of each academic year.
Students who are already covered by health insurance need not purchase the University sponsored plan. The Health and Wellness Center does recommend that students and parents check with their health insurance plan regarding (out of area) coverage benefits and need for referrals. Families may wish to supplement their student's insurance with the University sponsored plan.
Getting an Insurance Card
Please remember, if you do have the University Health Insurance, you may need to provide proof of insurance when visiting a provider outside of the Health Center. Please visit this link to request an Insurance Card.
