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 To Be Announced. Students with comparable existing health insurance coverage may complete an on-line Health Insurance Waiver at TBA. The waiver form for 2014-2015 will be available in mid-July. 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: TBA
The deadline to complete the waiver for fall 2014 is TBA
The deadline to complete the waiver for spring 2015 is TBA
Unless you complete the online waiver before the deadline, you will be required to pay the TBA premium for the semester; 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 who participate in the University group insurance plan fall semester but do not need coverage for the spring semester must come into the Student Accounts office with proof of current insurance to fill out a waiver form. 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 TBA.
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.
