    Waivers 2014 - 2015

    At SU Insurance is mandatory for all international students and we have minimum insurance coverage standards that all students need to meet. At this time, YOU ARE ALREADY REGISTERED and being charged for SU insurance, although you do have the option to waive SU’s policy (by no later than 1/12/15) if your personal policy meets or exceeds the coverage within the SU policy (see below). If you decide to go with SU’s policy, which would cover you from 1/5/2015 through 8/31/2015 you do not need to do anything at this time as you will be billed $832.18 for Winter-Spring-Summer coverage.
    In order for you to learn more about the Seattle U insurance plan we will be having an informational session at Winter quarter New International Student Orientation on Saturday, January 10th from 9am-5pm in Student Center Room 160 at SU.  The purpose of the session is to provide an overview of SU’s plan and to answer any questions you may have about the new policy. In the mean time, please feel free to read the attached brief policy summary to learn more about the plan.
    In order to WAIVE OUT OF THE SU INSURANCE PROGRAM you will need to fill out the online waiver form at:
    Any questions about the waiver can be directed to Wells Fargo Customer Care Line at 800-853-5899. If you call the line, please note that we have yet to send Wells Fargo a final list of Winter students so your name might not appear in their system but they are the best resource for any questions about the waiver and policy.
    This is a firm and hard date so waivers can’t be accepted after this date for any reason.
    Some aspects of SU’s policy that have also dictated our waiver process include having Primary Care & Emergency Services within a 25 mile radius of Seattle University. Your personal plan would also need to have coverage for Inpatient and Outpatient Mental Health benefits & prescription drug coverage. Furthermore, you will need to have a maximum annual benefit maximum that is unlimited per accident or illness and an annual deductible not to exceed $100 per accident or illness. Finally, for a policy to get waived it will need to have repatriation of remains coverage in the amount of $25,000 and coverage for medical evacuation to your home country in the amount of $25,000.
    Again, please feel free to contact the Wells Fargo Customer Care Line at 800-853-5899 with any questions.
