MIAD Health & Counseling Services and Health Insurance Information

July 12, 2016

A letter from Dean of Students Tony Nowak –


Dear Parents,

Now that classes have begun I want to update you on student health care services at MIAD. As the semester progresses it’s almost predictable that students will encounter colds, the flu, get stressed out about classes, and sleep and eat irregularly, all of which might cause them to seek medical help. All full-time students are eligible to receive health and counseling services at the Marquette University Student Health & Counseling Centers. All services provided at the Centers are free to MIAD students regardless of health insurance status. Further the MU Health & Counseling Centers serve a college age population exclusively so they specialize in treating the types of problems our students are most likely to encounter. If your son or daughter talks with you about a medical problem encourage them to make an appointment to see one of the MU Clinic’s doctors. Contact information and directions are on the back side of the student ID all students receive.

I also contact all students the first week of classes about the health insurance options available through MIAD. All students receive a brochure listing covered services, monthly premiums and an enrollment form. Students were encouraged to forward the message to their parents because few students know their insurance status until they need to use it. If you have insurance that covers your student in Milwaukee health insurance is not an issue for you. But for those of you whose son or daughter is out of network in Milwaukee you might be interested in the policy. Monthly premiums for students under 21 start at $127.71/month which is extremely reasonable for an ACA compliant insurance plan. If you have already received this information from your student you have what you need to make an informed decision about whether or not to enroll. If your student didn’t forward the information to you ask them to do so, or contact me and I’ll send it to you directly.

If you have questions about the services provided through the MU Health & Counseling Centers, or the coverage provided through the MIAD/WPS health insurance plan please contact me. We want to ensure that all of our students have a safe and healthy year!
