A Graduate Assistantship award covers full payment of the premium for the graduate assistant health insurance plan. The current Boise State GA plan is a student plan and the insurance provider is Wellfleet Student using the Cigna PPO network.
If you are a current student, visit the Relation Portal as your one-stop for all your plan information needs. The portal includes materials for the GA health insurance plan, including a how-to guide, benefits summary, and how to obtain your ID card. It also provides information regarding the Careington Dental Discount plan and the United Vision discount plan that come with your insurance benefit.
Boise State Health Services provides on-campus primary care, urgent care, counseling, immunizations and offers additional care that may be included in your health plan such as visits with a dietitian and massage therapy. Most services are provided under the Cigna PPO plan at no charge.
If you are a graduate student, but not receiving a graduate assistantship, please review your health insurance options with Health Services.
The GA health insurance coverage starts on the first day of the month of your first day of work.
The GA health insurance coverage ends on the last day of the month of your last day worked (i.e., if the last day worked is May 1-31, insurance ends May 31).*
Plan year dates as it relates to the annual deductible and out-of-pocket limits are August 1 – July 31.
*Exception: If you are a GA in the Spring term and receive a confirmed appointment for the following Fall term by June 1, your GA insurance will continue during the summer without a break in service.
