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) OR a future date that you want your insurance cancelled as of
- Note: The student health insurance plan is billed in two installments. The amount billed to the fall invoice is for the period of September 1st - February 28th, while the amount billed to the spring invoice is for the period of March 1st - August 31st.
- 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 (or the month you requested should that date be in the future). Charges will be removed from your student account and/or you will receive a pro-rated refund for the remaining unused coverage period. Please note that cancellations are effective as of the end of a given month; refunds are not issued for partial months.
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.
