Student Health Insurance

UMKC offers Aetna Student Health Insurance because we believe that all students should have health insurance coverage. For information regarding this plan, visit the Aetna Student Health website.

All UMKC students are eligible to use Student Health and Wellness regardless of their insurance status. When necessary, Student Health can refer students to a specialist in their insurance network.
