Important Health Insurance Considerations for COVID-19

ISU, working with its health insurer Wellmark, has decided to implement the following steps to help our Student and Scholar Health Insurance members:

Fall 2020 Open Enrollment

1 Jun 2020

Fall Open Enrollment for Health and Dental Insurance will begin on July 1, 2020 and end on September 30, 2020. Enrollment will be completed by visiting our BluesEnroll portal, which can be found by clicking on the "Health Insurance" link in AccessPlus, or the "Enroll Now" tab on our website. The coverage will begin on August 1, 2020.

** New this year!!**  Your current coverage, if already a registered student, will automatically continue on August 1. If you would like to keep the same coverage, then no action is necessary during the Fall Open Enrollment Period.

Graduate Assistant Payroll Deductions

12 Mar 2020

Two health and dental insurance deductions will be collected from Graduate Assistant paychecks during the months of March and April. The extra deductions are collected to pay for the June and July premiums. This is necessary to ensure coverage is provided until July 31.
