Welcome to Grand Valley State University!

As a service to our students, Grand Valley State University offers an opportunity to enroll in a Student Health Insurance Plan through Student Assurance Services. This plan is available to any student registered at Grand Valley State University and attending classes. Consolidated Health Plans (CHP) underwrites administers the plan and claims. We are pleased to offer and recommend this plan for all GVSU students. For complete information on this Plan please go to The Group Number for GVSU is S217016.

 It is important that you consider this program or one of your own choice. Please be aware that the University's liability insurance program does not cover injury or sickness sustained by a student; even if these activities result from class or group participation activities such as intramural sports or drama. We encourage you to review your medical insurance coverage to assure that it is adequate. If you do not have coverage, we strongly recommend that you purchase a policy.

This insurance plan complies with the minimum annual limit requirements for student plans as required by the Affordable Care Act. Please note that the minimum annual limits required by the Act for individual and group plans are different. Also, students should be eligible for coverage under a parent's group or individual policy until age 26.

This plan provides basic accident and sickness coverage at a reasonable cost. Enrollment in this plan provides coverage 24 hours a day worldwide, during the term of the student's policy. Look at the bottom of this page for further details concerning open enrollment periods, eligibility and costs.

This policy includes access to Travel Guard, a global emergency service with 24 hour assistance for students traveling away from school, including overseas. It also includes access to the Davis Vision® Affinity Discount Program. This program provides savings on eyewear, eye exams and other services at locations nationwide.

If you have any questions regarding this policy, please feel free to contact CHP at 1-800-633-7867 or go to the Website at and reference group number S217016.
