This webpage provides all the tools you need to manage your Mercyhurst University Student Health Insurance from Highmark Community PPO Blue. If you are a current Mercyhurst student, please visit the Student Health Insurance Hub page to access the Mercyhurst Student Health Insurance Enrollment Form, Dental Insurance Enrollment Form, Vision Insurance Enrollment Form, or the Mercyhurst Student Health Insurance Opt Out Form.

Mandatory Health Insurance Enrollment Policy

Mercyhurst University requires all student-athletes and international students (undergraduate, graduate, and adult) to have certain minimum health insurance to attend classes and participate in varsity athletics. If you do not complete the Health Insurance Enrollment Form, you will be automatically enrolled in the Mercyhurst University Student Health Insurance Plan and billed accordingly, unless you complete the Health Insurance Opt Out Form linked above and receive approval that your current insurance plan is acceptable. You may also purchase dental and/or vision insurance by using the link above, although this is not mandatory.

Any Mercyhurst University student and their dependents may also enroll in our health insurance on a voluntary basis. There are plans available for a combined student and spouse plan or family coverage; contact us for more information.


The cost of the Mercyhurst Student Health Insurance for the 2023-2024 academic year is $1,158 per semester.
