Health Insurance Options for RTS Students
Reformed Theological Seminary requires all students who are taking 12 or more hours in a given semester to demonstrate proof of health insurance in order to complete their registration. As of June 1, 2013, RTS is no longer able to offer an RTS student plan, and so students must find other options for insurance.
President Obama’s Health Care Reform bill has dramatically changed healthcare and insurance. To read more about the Healthcare Exchange which begins January 2014, visit Healthcare Exchange.
In order to help students in their search for a viable insurance option, we have provided several links below. However, we encourage you to explore all your options and choose wisely. While we accept all of these options, it does not mean that RTS endorses any of them.
