Seattle University bills a mandatory health insurance fee to all full-time undergraduate students. Students who are already insured may request to have this fee waived by completing the Acceptance/Waiver Form online at the Wells Fargo Waiver page. If you should have problems completing the online form then please contact the Student Health Center. Please see the Student Handbook (pg. 35) for a full description of the mandatory "tight waiver" undergraduate student health insurance policy. Waiver deadline is the last day of ADD/DROP for any students first Full-Time quarter each year.
If you are a Part-Time Undergraduate, Graduate or Law student and are interested in enrolling in the insurance, you may do so by following this link to the Wells Fargo Student Health Insurance page and selecting your status on the menu to the left. If you have questions regarding the enrollment process, please contact Wells Fargo at 1 (800) 853-5899.

Please note that if you are enrolled in the Full-time/Part-time Undergraduate, Graduate or Law Insurance plan, the Student Health Center is your primary care provider. If you have established care with an outside provider, and would like to continue seeing them you will be subject to the $100 deductible which is explained in the insurance brochure (please see above). We cannot write an outside referral for services that are offered here in our office.
If you are treated in the Student Health Center and you need to be referred to a specialist you will be given a referral outside of the clinic and the 100.00 will be waived. No retroactive referrals will be written for students that do not come to the Student Health Center first. It is the student's responsibility to check if provider is in or out of network.**

Insurance reimbursement for any fees incurred for services is the responsibility of the student. If you are a student insured under the Undergraduate, Graduate, Part Time or Law student health insurance plan, you do NOT need to submit a claim form; simply send any receipts and medical bills with your name and medical Identification number found on your medical ID card to the Claims Administrator for processing. Refer to your Student Health Insurance brochure for information on the Claims Administrator. If current undergraduate students do not have health insurance coverage of their own, coverage is provided under the 2013-2014 Student Health Insurance Domestic Plan. This PDF document outlines the details of the plan. Further inquiries can be made through Wells Fargo Insurance Services at 800.853.5899
