Student Accounts: Health Insurance
The University believes that a solid health plan is vital to the well being of our students. As such, all full-time undergraduate students are required to carry medical insurance and are automatically enrolled in Regence BlueCross BlueShield of Oregon. Students with comparable existing health insurance coverage may complete an on-line Health Insurance Waiver at NW Student Health Insurance Consortium Waiver. The waiver form for 2014-2015 will be available July 15, 2014. Please have your health insurance ID card available. If you are an incoming student for spring 2015 semester, the form will be available online in mid-December. The waiver can be submitted by following these steps:
- Go to: NW Student Health Insurance Consortium Waiver (available July 15, 2014)
- To log in, enter your Social Security # (SSN). If you do not have a SSN or if you have not provided your SSN to the University, enter your 9 digit Student ID # (i.e. 001234567)
- Enter the last 4 digits of your SSN (or the last 4 digits of your Student ID # if you don't have a SSN) and the last 2 digits of your birth year in the password field.
Social Security Number: 111-22-3333
Date of Birth: 05-09-1995
Your password would be 333395
The deadline to complete the waiver for fall 2014 is August 29, 2014 noon (PDT)
The deadline to complete the waiver for spring 2015 is January 16, 2015 (PST)
Unless you complete the online waiver before the deadline, you will be required to pay the $952.00 premium fall and spring semester. The full year $1,904.00 premium will not be pro-rated even if you obtain other comparable insurance during the year; no exceptions will be granted. Within 2 business days of submission of the waiver, the insurance charge will be offset by a waiver credit. The waiver must be completed every fall, and applies to both fall and spring semesters. Students new to the University and students who were not enrolled on campus for the fall semester (i.e. Studies Abroad, IES, students on a leave of absence, etc.) must go online and follow the instructions above to waive the spring insurance.
Information about the insurance offered through the University of Portland can be found at 14-15 Health Insurance Highlight Sheet, UP 2014/15 Summary of Benefits and Coverage, UP Pediatric Dental Summary of Benefits and Coverage, and regence.com.
Part-time undergraduate and all graduate students are not required to participate in the University group insurance plan and are not automatically enrolled. Part-time undergraduate students and graduate students who would like to participate in the University group insurance plan should contact Student Accounts for more information.
