There are two ways students at CU Boulder can meet the health insurance requirement:
Anthem Gold Student Health Insurance Plan (SHIP)
A plan exclusively for CU Students.
If you do not have private health insurance or want comprehensive coverage on and off campus, you can enroll in Anthem Gold SHIP.
This plan provides a full year of coverage for mental health and medical services on campus, as well as local and national coverage.
Enroll in the Anthem Gold SHIP for $2,311 per semester.

Private health insurance
If you already have health insurance coverage through an individual, family or employer plan, you must submit proof of insurance through an online waiver application and be approved.
CU Boulder Health and Wellness Services accepts most major insurance plans for care provided on campus and through telehealth.
If you choose to use your own insurance, we highly recommend purchasing BuffCare to minimize your out-of-pocket expenses on campus.
Supplemental coverage plan
The BuffCare Supplemental Coverage Program is available for students with private health insurance.
