The Emory University Student Health Insurance Plan (EUSHIP)

What's new this year about the Emory University Student Health Insurance Plan (EUSHIP):

  • In 2018, Emory University successfully become a self-insured (self-funded) student health insurance plan. As a self-insured plan, Emory will operate its own student health plan with Aetna Student Health as the plan administrators. And with the uncertainty of available healthcare options, this is the perfect time to consider the Emory University Student Health Insurance Plan (EUSHIP).
