We take student health seriously at JMU. The JMU Health Center is committed to supporting your health needs while you are an enrolled student. Having appropriate health insurance coverage plays an important part in your ability to have a successful student experience at JMU.
Because of the on-going changes in the insurance marketplace, the JMU Health Center is unable to offer a school sponsored Student Health Insurance Policy for students currently enrolled.
To assist you with making informed choices about health insurance, the Health Center has entered into an agreement with BB&T Insurance Services. BB&T Insurance is a local insurance broker, and they, in partnership with American Exchange, are available and qualified to provide insurance advice to currently enrolled JMU students and/or their parents or guardians.
Options to consider:
A) Enroll in insurance coverage through the Health Insurance Marketplace (i.e., the Public Exchange)
B) Purchase short-term medical coverage on an individual basis
American Exchange (a licensed enrollment specialist) can assist you with option A or B
American Exchange process:
- Complete the pre-enrollment form
- Call American Exchange at 888-995-1674
- Remain on the line to speak with the next available licensed enrollment agent
- Identify yourself as a JMU student (or parent/guardian of a JMU student) needing assistance with determining best options for insurance coverage
C) Enroll or continue coverage under your parent's health insurance plan until age 26
D) Contact an insurance agency of your choice (in your hometown or in the Harrisonburg area)
