Health Insurance at CU Denver

​*Student Health Insurance will be closed from December 24th to January 4th. The Health Center at Auraria will be closed from December 24th to January 4th. Please go to an Urgent Care facility if you are in need of medical care. For emergencies, please go to the nearest Emergency Room or call 911 for an ambulance.

The University of Colorado Denver does not have a mandatory health insurance policy for domestic students. This means that domestic students DO NOT HAVE TO SHOW PROOF OF HEALTH INSURANCE.

As of August 2016, the University of Colorado Denver is no longer offering an optional health insurance plan for domestic students. 


Under the Affordable Care Act, the federal government requires that U.S. citizens have health insurance coverage or pay a fee on their next federal tax return. Students should visit​, the official State Health Insurance Exchange for Colorado, to explore their health insurance options.
