Walla Walla University believes that insurance is extremely important for all students. All undergraduate and graduate students (including international students) must be covered by a health insurance plan. Students are responsible for obtaining and maintaining their health insurance. The University Health Clinic is run by Providence Medical Group, so be sure to check your health insurance plan to see if they are in-network providers, or consider other health insurance plans via the links below.
If you do not currently have insurance that provides coverage in Walla Walla, here are resources to assist you in obtaining insurance for the upcoming academic year.
For residents on our campuses visit these online marketplaces to compare and enroll in health insurance:
- Washington (College Place campus): www.wahealthplanfinder.org
- Oregon (Portland campus): www.oregonhealthcare.gov
- Montana (Missoula and Billings campuses): www.healthinsurance.org/montana-state-health-insurance-exchange/
For non-Washington US residents: research your state health insurance exchange and purchase a policy with “out of network” benefits or purchase a “multi-state plan”. More information about health plans and exchanges can be found at www.healthcare.gov
For international students: International students are required to have Health and Accident insurance. Purchasing health insurance for the United States can be overwhelming. Walla Walla University encourages you to review the policy carefully to include medical evacuation and repatriation benefits.

Intercollegiate Athletic Accident Insurance - Walla Walla University covers all intercollegiate athletes with accident insurance.
