Student Health Insurance

All undergraduate students taking 12 or more credits, all international graduate students taking 9 or more credits, and all full-time nursing students are required to purchase the Student Health Insurance Plan, unless proof of comparable coverage is furnished.  These students will have an insurance fee assessed as part of the student fees on their tuition account.

For the 2016-2017 university year, our plan name is United Healthcare Choice Plus. For the list of preferred providers please visit First Student. For more information including the brochure, insurance/RX card and medical and RX claim forms can be found on this site. Using in-network providers will reduce your out of pocket costs. All claim forms must be filed within 60 days for reimbursement. Medical statements and pharmacy bills should be attached to the claim form and mailed to the address located on the forms.

The insurance plan has a 3 tiered prescription drug benefit. There is a $15 Copay for Tier 1 / $40 Copay for Tier 2 / $65 Copay for Tier 3 up to 31-day supply per prescription and should be filled at a United Healthcare Pharmacy (UHCP). Mail Order Pharmacy for a 90 day supply can be obtained through UHCP at 2.5 times the retail copay. For a list of nationwide participating pharmacies please visit First Student.

Students who have adequate hospitalization insurance coverage, may waive the student insurance fee by completing the Waiver form online. To complete a waiver process, please visit First Student after July 9th, 2016 select your school from the drop down box, click on the “Enroll Now-Health Insurance” or “Waive Your School’s Health insurance” button, and follow instructions. The waiver deadline for Fall 2016 semester is September 28, 2016. For new and transfer students for Spring/Summer 2017 semester, waivers will be available online after December 1, 2016. The deadline to complete the Spring/Summer waiver is February 16, 2017. Once you have completed your waiver you will receive a confirmation e-mail. Please retain this as proof that you have waived. Without this confirmation you are not guaranteed that your account will be credited. If you do not complete a waiver prior to the deadline, you will be automatically enrolled in this insurance plan. Once enrolled there are no refunds or cancellations, except for entry into the armed forces. The waiver process is only completed on an annual basis for 2016-2017 year.

Please note: The Student Accident and Sickness Insurance Plan provides limited medical coverage benefits, and does not cover all services. Please make sure you read the plan brochure for details on coverage.
