Student Employee Health Coverage - Human Resources at Ohio State

Health Coverage

Undergraduate students are only eligible to participate in Ohio State’s Student Health Insurance unless they are eligible for the Faculty and Staff Health Plan through the Affordable Care Act, previous full-time employment with Ohio State or other current benefits-eligible employment with Ohio State.

Graduate Associates (GA) are eligible to participate in Ohio State’s Student Health Insurance and the Faculty and Staff Health Plan. Graduate associates have 31 days from their start date if they wish to elect the Faculty and Staff Health Plan. As a GA, you have several options for health coverage.
