We take health seriously and are committed to supporting the student body. Because of the ongoing changes in the insurance marketplace, the Health Center has an agreement with McGriff Insurance Services, a local insurance broker. McGriff Insurance Services, in partnership with American Exchange, is available and qualified to provide insurance expertise for currently enrolled JMU students and their parents/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:

  1. Complete the pre-enrollment form
  2. Call American Exchange at 888-995-1674
  3. Remain on the line to speak with the next available licensed enrollment agent
  4. Identify yourself as a JMU student (or parent/guardian of a JMU student) who needs assistance with determining best options for insurance coverage

C) Enroll or continue coverage under your parent's health insurance plan until age 26
Contact an insurance agency of your choice (in your hometown or in the Harrisonburg area)
