Student Health Insurance
Western Technical College does not carry medical insurance to cover students. This means that you are responsible for your own coverage in case of an injury, accident, or incident that might require medical attention. You can enroll into affordable health coverage through the Health Insurance Marketplaces. The Marketplaces are a revolutionary way to shop for insurance – you can compare costs and benefits and find out if you are eligible for new tax credits.
You can apply for health coverage in the Marketplace four ways: online, with a paper application, by phone, or in person with assistance. Learn more.
