Health Insurance

Your health is important to us!

To make sure that all students can receive timely medical care when they need it, we require all students to be covered by a medical insurance policy that covers injury and sickness. You have several insurance options to choose from.

Menlo's Student Insurance Plan

Menlo College provides a Student Sickness and Injury Plan available to all active Menlo students. This plan covers sickness and injury, provides a prescription drug benefit, and covers you worldwide. You may choose to carry this student plan alone or in addition to another insurance plan as a way to offset high deductibles. If you do not waive this insurance, you will be automatically enrolled.

For more information about the Menlo College Student Insurance, review the online brochure (PDF).  For coverage or claims questions, contact Summit America Customer Service at 877.246.6997.

Are you under age 26? You can be covered under your parents’ insurance plan if it covers dependent children and is valid in the Atherton, California area. If you have proof of comparable insurance and wish to waive Menlo’s coverage, you will need to do so online at

Independent Insurance Plan

If you require a more comprehensive insurance plan that includes well care and regular check-ups, you may wish to seek your own insurance coverage. Be sure to visit to find more information about coverage that is available to all young adults.
