Health Insurance Plan

Attn: Insurance opt in information

All students are automatically enrolled in the student health insurance plan once they are fully registered for the fall semester. The student health insurance plan provides coverage effective 8/1/17 and ends 7/31/18. Students may elect to waive out of the insurance until 9/5/17. Students wishing to be on the student insurance plan, and know they will not waive, may “opt in” to the plan in order to obtain insurance cards prior to the waiver deadline of 9/5. It is not necessary to “opt-in”. This is only necessary if the student wishes to have insurance cards prior to the waiver deadline. Students who do not waive, and who do not “opt in” will have insurance cards available to them via the UHC portal on 9/6/17.

Students wishing to remain on the plan and want an insurance card prior to 9/6 should click here to opt-in to the plan.
