Students at Southeast, with the exception of international students, are not required to have active health insurance as a condition of enrollment; however, it is strongly encouraged. Students who are not covered under their parent/guardians' health insurance plan or have no coverage of their own are encouraged to consider securing health insurance.

Because of options for health insurance available in the private market and through various governmental programs, the University does not offer an optional University sponsored or funded insurance for domestic students for the 2012-1013 academic year.

Southeast students who participated in the now discontinued Missouri Consortium Injury and Sickness Insurance Plan underwritten by UnitedHealthcare Insurance Company can get details on their previous insurance from UnitedHealthCare.

The plan is underwritten by UnitedHealthcare Insurance Company and is based on policy 1729. Details on the program are found in the Certificate of Coverage. The certificate of coverage provides details of the coverage including costs, benefits, exclusions, any reductions or limitations and the terms under which the coverage may be continued in force. Copies of the certificate can be viewed and downloaded at

For information or more details on your past participation in the program please contact Customer Service at 800-767-0700 or

Any arrangements between a student/parent and UnitedHealthcare Insurance Company are considered a third party agreement and independent of the University, Campus Health Clinic or any department at Southeast Missouri State University. The University will NOT be responsible for any costs incurred by those who participated in the plan. Southeast Missouri State University is no longer a partner for this program and therefore all questions about past participation in this can only be responded to from UnitedHealthcare.  

Please note: International students are required to purchase this insurance in order to attend Southeast Missouri State University. More information about this requirement can be found at the frequently asked questions section of International Programs and Services website.
