Kettering University requires all students to carry health insurance coverage.  The University requires all enrolled students to submit proof of health insurance once each academic year, or to purchase Kettering’s Student Health Insurance Plan.

  • AIG Educational Markets, a third party, verifies health insurance coverage through their online system.  Students must complete the online verification process.
  • Students will automatically be enrolled in Kettering’s Student Health Insurance Plan for coverage if they fail to provide proof of health insurance through the online verification process by the deadline.
  • Students who wish to enroll in Kettering’s Accident and Sickness Insurance Plan need not take any action.
  • Cost of the University insurance plan is $1260.00 for coverage July 1, 2014 to June 30, 2015. See the Plan Brochure for complete information
  • Students may also purchase dependent coverage through the Kettering plan.

Students and their parents may contact AIG through their website or toll-free at (877) 775-5430. Kettering’s Wellness Center staff will also answer questions about the health insurance verification procedure.

Frequently Asked Questions about Kettering’s Health Insurance Policies and Procedures

Why does Kettering care whether or not students have health insurance?

We believe access to health care, through affordable insurance, to be critical to our student’s success and wellbeing. We want to ensure that ill and injured students receive necessary medical care, when and where they need it. The most cost effective means for providing access to affordable health care is through individual insurance coverage. Rather than mandating all students purchase Kettering’s health insurance plan, we only require it only of those students who do not have other coverage.

Who is AIG Educational Markets and why is Kettering doing business with them?

AIG Educational Markets has more than 40 years experience providing health insurance coverage and insurance verification services to hundreds of colleges and universities throughout the United States. Kettering contracts with them following a competitive bid process carried out by professional staff from the Wellness Center, Student Life, and Administration and Finance. This committee selected AIG because they provide Kettering with the most comprehensive medical coverage at the most competitive price.
