2014-2015 Academic Year
Access to student insurance coverage has changed and the JMU Health Center is unable to offer a student health insurance policy this year.
Because of this change, the Health Center entered into an agreement with BB&T Insurance Services, a local insurance broker. BB&T Insurance, in partnership with American Exchange, is available and qualified to provide insurance expertise for currently enrolled JMU students and their parents.
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
BB&T Insurance Services and American Exchange can assist with option A or B.
American Exchange Procedure:
Complete the pre-enrollment checklist
Call 888-995-1674 (remain on the line to speak with an enrollment specialist)
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)
International students with specific questions regarding health insurance should contact the JMU Office of International Programs at 540-568-6419.
