2014-2015 Student Health Benefit Plan

The University of Minnesota requires all international students and their dependents to purchase the University-sponsored Student Health Benefit Plan (SHBP) unless they are eligible for a waiver.

Duluth students can receive valued services at low costs at participating providers in the Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Minnesota network. The Office of Student Health Benefits negotiated with Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Minnesota to create the most robust student health plan possible.

Key features of the SHBP include:
