All DPT students are responsible for purchasing and maintaining health insurance coverage throughout the DPT program. Distance education students should seek health services in their local communities. During on-site lab intensives, students will need to seek medical care for illnesses or injuries at local urgent care facilities or emergency rooms. Students are financially responsible for any services rendered by these medical facilities. Students are responsible for maintaining personal health insurance coverage during their entire tenure in the DPT Program.
Everyone deserves access to affordable, quality health care coverage and services. You can find and enroll in affordable health insurance plans at Healthcare.gov. You may also find information about Open Enrollment, How to get or stay on a parent’s plan, how to enroll or change health insurance plans, and tips about the Health Insurance Marketplace on this site.
Please note that students without health insurance cannot participate in patient contact activities both in the didactic and clinical phase, and therefore cannot successfully complete the program.
