2015-2016 Student Health Benefit Plan

The Student Health Benefit Plan (SHBP) is a cost-effective, comprehensive health plan designed to meet the unique needs of students.

Key features of the SHBP include:

Many students find the University-sponsored plan to be a better value than alternative plans under parents, spouses, and employers, or individual health plan options.

The Office of Student Health Benefits negotiated with Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Minnesota to create the most robust student health plan possible. And because the Office of Student Health Benefits receives these features at cost—meaning with no inflated prices—the SHBP is an extremely cost-effective health plan for students.

From the staff at the Office of Student Health Benefits, we look forward to serving you!
