SSHIP Health Insurance

Insurance Especially for Students and Scholars

Wellmark Blue Cross Blue Shield, working with Iowa State University, offers the Student and Scholar Health Insurance Plan (SSHIP). The plan offers health insurance that protects students and scholars at school, at home, and while traveling or studying abroad.

Student Health is the provider for the services covered in the insurance plan, however we are NOT the administrators of the plan. Any questions about coverage for the plan should be directed to the SSHIP office.

To learn more about the plan or to register for the coverage, please visit the Student and Scholar Health Insurance Plan website, email the SSHIP office at, or call 515-294-4800.
