U-M students can also consider the U-M Domestic Student Health Insurance Plan (DSHIP)

Students who not eligible for subsidies on the Marketplace or expanded Medicaid may want to consider this low-cost plan. Only U-M offers this plan, and it was developed to meet student needs. It is an annual plan and is not refundable once purchased. Its benefits are comparable to a “gold” plan on the Health Insurance Marketplace. This plan is available for purchase only during the U-M DSHIP open enrollment periods, with exceptions for qualifying life events.  Please note student health insurance plans are not listed on the Marketplace.
