Health Benefits

Section 11.3 of the Graduate School Handbook

Health Insurance. GAs, fellows and trainees who are enrolled at least half-time are required to carry health insurance as a condition of enrollment. The university provides a health subsidy for graduate and professional students with fellowship, traineeship, or 50 percent or greater GA appointments paid through the Ohio State payroll system. The university subsidy is 85 percent of the Student Health Insurance (SHI) premium for eligible funded graduate and professional students enrolled in single coverage. The university also provides a subsidy of 85 percent of the SHI premium for enrolled dependents of eligible funded graduate and professional students. Externally funded fellows or trainees who are paid outside of the Ohio State payroll system are not eligible for the university health insurance subsidy. See Section 3.3 for other benefits related to SHI, including mental health benefits.
