Cornell University's office of Student Health Benefits is responsible for ensuring that all Cornell students meet the university's health insurance requirements.

We also manage and provide support for students (and their dependents) enrolled in Cornell's Student Health Plan (SHP), Dental Plan, and Vision Plan.

Student Health Benefits works alongside Weill Cornell Medicine’s Student Accounting department to provide coverage for students at WCM and to assist eligible students in the waiver process. For more information on Weill Cornell Medicine’s insurance coverage and policies visit the website.

Our staff works closely with students and campus colleagues on Cornell’s Student Health Benefits Advisory Committee (SHBAC) to make sure the university's plans meet the needs of our diverse student body.

Please note that our office is separate and distinct from Cornell Health. If you have a question regarding the student health fee or your experience receiving care at Cornell Health, please see their website.
