Is student health insurance considered to be short-term, limited duration coverage?

No, short-term limited duration coverage is not considered student health plan coverage. Short-term limited duration coverage cannot exceed a coverage period of more than 180 days and is not renewable after that term, it also does not provide coverage for preexisting conditions. Student health plans are designed to provide coverage that a student could have through the same health insurance issuer for one or more years during the course of his or her undergraduate or graduate education.
