Information

Domestic students can waive the University sponsored insurance via the United HealthCare (UHCSR) waiver portal.  You or your designee will need your student ID (C#), date of birth and insurance information in order to submit a waiver request.  You will receive a waiver approval or denial (if we are unable to confirm insurance coverage) from waiverstatus@uhcsr.comwithin 5 business days of waiver submission.

Domestic students enrolled in six or more credit hours per semester (or considered full time, including graduate students enrolled in a 700/800 level class) are required to obtain adequate health insurance (see exceptions). The annual premium for the health insurance plan offered through the Student Health Service is added to each student's fees. Domestic students with adequate alternative coverage may request cancellation of the insurance fee via CaneLink. Students with limited out of area coverage or otherwise inadequate coverage are urged to carefully review their options before waiving the Student Health Service sponsored insurance plan. Deadlines to waive the insurance are July 25th for the Fall semester, January 25th for the Spring semester, April 25th for Summer I and June 25th for Summer II.

Insurance cancellation requests must be renewed each academic year via CaneLink .

Insurance Rates for the upcoming academic year are generally available by June 1st. Part-time students and others not routinely eligible for care at the Health Center who choose to be insured will be charged the Health and Counseling Centers fee in addition to the annual premium for health insurance coverage.

Students who previously waived the insurance charge can reinstate the insurance prior to the Spring semester by completing the reinstatement request form and checklist. Coverage can also be reinitiated at the start of the Fall semester by choosing not to re-waive the charge, or at other times during the academic year, if within 30 days of termination of other similar coverage, by completing the reinstatement request form and checklist. Documentation of termination may be requested.

The deadline for reinstatement of insurance is January 25th for the Spring semester. Please do not consider your reinstatement complete until reinstatement has been verified via CaneLink, the charge has been posted to your student account and all charges on your account have been paid.

Students scheduled to graduate at the end of the Fall semester can request to be charged for the Fall semester only by completing an insurance exception form by September 1st. Students who request to be charged for the Fall only, and remain enrolled, will be subject to the Spring/Summer insurance fee.
