Full-time undergraduate students at Seattle University are required to have health insurance but may waive the student health plan if they have health insurance with comparable coverage in the state of Washington. If not waived, the student will be automatically enrolled in the Aetna Student Health plan.
Students must actively waive the health insurance every academic year. Waivers from previous years do not roll over.
If you already have an approved waiver for fall 2019 or winter 2020 that waiver will apply through 8/31/2020 and you do not need to complete another waiver this quarter.
If you will be living outside of Washington State during Spring quarter then the requirement is enrollment in a health insurance plan which gives you coverage for primary care, emergency care, and inpatient/outpatient mental health benefits in the area you are living. In addition it must offer unlimited prescrition benefits and full coverage for all pre-existing conditions as well as be owned, headquartered, and operated in the United States and provide prescription benefit.
Spring/summer term waiver deadline has been moved to April 21, 2020.
Requirements to waive the Aetna Student Health Plan:
A plan that only provides urgent and emergency care is insufficient to waive the student health insurance.
If you miss the waiver deadline you may submit a waiver when it opens for the next term, however you will be responsible for the current terms premium.
For the 19-20 academic year, students who are taking a part-time course load (< 12 credits) and have been granted the full-time equivalency (FTE) accommodation will not be required to participate in the student insurance program.
We encourage all students to have medical insurance that provides care in Washington State including primary care, mental health care, and prescription benefits as well as emergency care. We strongly encourage you to enroll in the plan if you do currently do not have a medical plan with this coverage.
