Dear Student:

Good health is a necessary condition of academic success. To help you maintain yours, Kettering University requires you to carry health insurance. This requirement may help prevent your academic progress from being interrupted, halted or seriously impaired if you become injured or sick.

This requirement can be met in two ways. You may purchase your own insurance, either as an individual or as a dependent on your parents’ coverage. A second option is to purchase Kettering University’s Student Health Insurance Plan, available through AIG Educational Markets, at a cost of

$1,260.00 for one year’s coverage, July 1, 2013 to June 30, 2014.

All new students enrolling in Summer Term (A-section) and returning A- and B-section students must complete the online health insurance verification process by July 31, 2013. Students who fail to complete the verification by that deadline will automatically be enrolled in the Kettering University Student Health Insurance Plan at a cost of $1,260.00 for the academic year. No exceptions will be made.

Visit the Health Insurance page on the Wellness Center web site at and click on the AIG logo. It will take you directly to the AIG Educational Markets website for Kettering University students ( If you have a log- in, use that to get back into your account. If you are a new student, create your log-in information. Once you are logged into the system, you will see the instructions on how to verify your insurance.

If you require health insurance, then there is no action needed on your part. Your account will be billed automatically.

You may direct questions regarding Kettering University’s Health Insurance Plan to AIG customer service at 888.722.1668.  If there are questions related to the verification process, feel free to contact the Wellness Center at 810.762.9650 or email the center at
