SHCS does not require or sell insurance. However, it is important for students to
have insurance coverage for emergency and specialty care services. Student Health
insurance is available for purchase through CSU Health Link. More information can
be found at CSU Health Link.
Since January 1, 2014, under new federal law, many CSU students and their families
may be eligible for financial assistance in purchasing health insurance. In California,
the exchange for health insurance is called Covered California. Covered California
is an online marketplace for affordable health insurance. Individuals and families
may qualify for financial assistance in paying the costs of health insurance coverage.
