When you attend a theological seminary, graduate school of religion, divinity school, or school of Christian education full time and prepare for a vocation in the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.), you may be eligible to purchase comprehensive healthcare coverage through the Board of Pensions at a significantly reduced cost.
Individual coverage, for example, will cost $298.50 per month in the EPO (exclusive provider organization) of Highmark Blue Cross Blue Shield. That pricing represents a 44 percent reduction from the current cost, and still includes the full range of health services and prescription drug benefits.
If eligible, you may elect coverage during the enrollment period, August 15-September 30, 2017, or within 60 days of first enrolling in seminary during the spring semester or of becoming an inquirer or candidate for ordination.
