Waiver Process

The waiver link in WebSTAC is available after August 1, 2017 for students entering Wash U and may be used once the student has received their WUSTL Key.
Please note that you have two attempts to waive out of the student health insurance. Your account cannot be unlocked to facilitate additional attempts.


All full-time, degree seeking students on the Danforth Campus are required to have health insurance.

Washington University in St. Louis offers a comprehensive student health insurance plan that is robust, cost-effective, Affordable Care Act (ACA) compliant plan through United Healthcare Student Resources.

The Student Health Insurance Premium is added to all eligible students’ accounting statement in the fall of each year. Eligible students are considered full time, degree seeking students in a day program on the Danforth Campus. This year the premium is $1,512 for the entire year. Coverage begins 8/1/2016 and ends 7/31/2017. Eligible students must pay the premium or complete the online waiver process prior to the deadline. After completion of the online waiver process, the waiver will be verified and approved, after which, the premium will be removed from the student’s accounting statement.

Students on an F-1 or J-1 visa are not allowed to waive out of the plan unless they are on a US based employer plan through a US based insurance company.

 

A completed, verified and approved waiver is required yearly if you do not wish to participate in the university’s insurance plan. September 5, 2016 is the deadline for completion of the waiver process. This is a hard deadline and no exceptions will be made.

Partial Year Students

Students on exchange programs only at Wash U for one semester will be charged for one semester only.

Students intending to graduate in December will receive notification from SHS once they file an intent to graduate outlining their options for continuation of coverage. Students not wishing to continue coverage after the first semester will be provided a refund for the second semester of coverage at that time.
