Health Insurance

NHTI requires proof of current health insurance for students enrolled in an Allied Health program or playing on an NHTI athletic team. NHTI does not provide access to health insurance; it is up to the student to obtain health insurance. A copy of a student’s current insurance card must be provided to Health Services prior to the start of any Allied Health or athletic team program. Active military can submit a copy of a military ID.

Health insurance must meet the following criteria:

  • Be a U.S.-based insurance plan

  • Provide the 10 essential health benefits specified in the Affordable Care Act (ACA)

  • Include access to hospital and physician providers local to NHTI

  • Remain in effect for the entire semester

The following plans do not meet the criteria:

  • An accident-only policy

  • A short-term limited duration health plan that does not meet ACA requirements

  • A ministry sharing plan

  • Any other health benefits program not recognized by the state of N.H. as being health insurance
