Student Health Insurance Waiver/Enrollment Process
This process is now closed for the Spring 2023 semester and will re-open for the 2023-2024 academic year soon.
Students are encouraged to review insurance coverage and eligibility.
Undergraduate student coverage is defined in the insurance policy as follows: “All full-time undergraduate students taking 12 or more credit hours (regardless of residential status), all Undergraduate residential students in all other programs (Including students with Dual Admission) regardless of credit hours, and All nursing Transfer students with 60 credits are automatically enrolled in the UnitedHealthcare Blanket Student Health Insurance Plan at registration, and the premium for coverage is added to their tuition billing unless proof of comparable coverage is furnished.”
Graduate student coverage is defined in the insurance policy as follows: “All graduate students participating in the following clinical programs with 6 or more credit hours: DOT, DPT, MS SLP, MSN, MSW, dual degree MSW, PsyD, dual degree PsyD, Physician’s Assistant and Master’s in Nutrition, and all main campus residential graduate students in all other programs (including Students with Dual Admission) regardless of Credit Hours are automatically enrolled in the UnitedHealthcare Blanket Student Health Insurance Plan at registration, and the premium for coverage is added to their tuition billing unless proof of comparable coverage is furnished.”
“For all eligibility, the student, defined as a ‘Named Insured’ under the policy terms, must actively attend classes for at least the first 31 days after the date for which coverage is purchased. Home study, correspondence, and online-only programs do not fulfill the student’s eligibility requirements of actively attending classes. The Company maintains its right to investigate eligibility or student status and attendance records to verify that the Policy eligibility requirements have been met. If and whenever the Company discovers that the Policy eligibility requirements have not been met, its only obligation is a refund of premium.” Insurance is provided by a third-party provider and not the University and requires both eligibility and payment of premiums. Please review carefully the insurance company’s eligibility requirements above.

All registered international students (unless sponsored by SACM) are automatically enrolled in this insurance plan at registration, and the premium for coverage is added to their tuition billing.

Automatic enrollment in the plan occurs after the deadline. However, your coverage is retroactive to the policy start date. After the enrollment period ends, you will receive an email from United Healthcare with directions to download your insurance card. If you do not receive an email, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or call Student Health at (610) 499-1183.
Please note: At this time the university does not offer voluntary enrollment into the insurance plan. Students are encouraged to review insurance coverage and eligibility requirements.
