Current students are able to add dependents onto their university health insurance plan. However, dependents are not able to utilize the Student Health Center or Counseling Center, even when using university insurance as these services are limited to current students. Please see the list below of alternative health resources for dependents - some do not require insurance, whereas some do. Please be sure to double check with these resources in order to ensure they take whatever insurance you have.
