Fall 2014 Health Plan Waiver

Eligible students are automatically enrolled in the University-sponsored Student Health Benefit Plan (SHBP) unless they waive the coverage. A charge for coverage on the SHBP will appear on your student account. The coverage and charge may be waived if you complete the waiver process per established guidelines by September 15, 2014. Approved waivers are valid for two years.

You are eligible to waive enrollment on this plan if you have health plan coverage for the entirety of each semester.

If you do not appropriately waive the SHBP by September 15, 2014, you will be enrolled and billed for the entire semester.

Please submit details of your active health plan coverage when you register for classes, by providing the following:

  1. the name of your insurance company,
  2. your member ID number, and
  3. your group number.

This information can be entered during registration or provided online through the deadline at:

If you enrolled in the SHBP when you registered for classes but now have other health insurance coverage, you must provide your updated health information per the process outlined above by the deadline.

It is your responsibility to review your Student Account at the beginning of each semester to ensure that it reflects the appropriate level of SHBP coverage regardless of your college's or a University program's involvement in your registration process or who is paying your bill.

For eligible students, the fee for the SHBP will appear on the University billing statement at the beginning of each school semester along with other University fees. You can make changes to health plan information online until the published class registration deadline.

If you have any questions about what the waiver is or how the waiver process works, contact the Office of Student Health Benefits using the information found on the right navigation.

It's important to waive the University plan correctly: Providing deceptive information on the health plan registration screen is a violation of the Student Code of Conduct and could result in student judicial action in addition to denial of enrollment in the SHBP. Students who are automatically enrolled in the Plan will be charged the full, nonrefundable fee for the SHBP at the start of each semester.
