While some students with a change of enrollment status with the University wish to keep their health insurance coverage, other students wish to cancel it, the choice is yours.
Should you wish to keep your health insurance coverage, there is no action that you need to take. All enrollments through the student health insurance plan are effective through the end of the academic year.* If your contact information (mailing address, email, etc.) will change, please contact the insurance company directly using the information on the back of your card.
Should you wish to cancel your health insurance, you must take action and submit written notification requesting cancellation. To do so please send an email to your student health insurance representative and include the following in your email:
- A statement indicating that you have had a change of enrollment status with the University AND the date that status goes into effect
- A statement that you want your student health insurance plan cancelled as of the status date (or effective immediately if the status date has already passed)
- Your full name which will serve as your electronic signature
If we receive a written cancellation request from you as indicated above, then your insurance will be cancelled as of the end of that month and charges will be removed from your student account for the remaining unused coverage period. You will receive a confirmation from your student health insurance representative that your request has been received and processed. If you do not receive this confirmation, then that indicates that your request was not received. Should we not receive a written statement from you indicating that you wish to cancel your health insurance coverage, your coverage will remain in place per the policy through the end of the academic year* and you will be responsible for the corresponding charges.
*Dates vary by academic program.
