Wellness must be a prerequisite to all else.  Students cannot be intellectually proficient if they are physically and psychologically unwell.

Health insurance is mandatory for all students

You are required to either enroll online in the Messiah University sponsored Student Health Insurance plan, or submit an online request to waive coverage. If you are covered by your own plan, or your family’s health insurance plan, you still need to take action to inform us of the coverage. Please review your current plan to be sure that your benefits extend to the Pennsylvania area.

For questions about the plan, please contact Paige Fritz at Messiah RCM&D at 1-800 346 4075, Ext. 1607,


First year and Transfer student will be able to waive insurance 1 week AFTER class registration.
