MANDATORY INSURANCE & WAIVER FOR FULL-TIME UNDERGRADUATES
Full-time undergraduates (12 or more credits) at Seattle University are required to have health insurance. Please see the Student Handbook (pg. 65) for a full description of the mandatory health insurance requirement. There are two options for meeting this requirement:
As a default, full-time undergraduate students are automatically enrolled in the SU contracted Student Health Insurance Plan managed by USI Insurance Services. The premium will be billed annually to the student's account in the first full-time quarter of the year. For continuing full time students the first full-time quarter of the year is Fall quarter. If this is your choice, no further action is required.
Medical Plan: UnitedHealthcare StudentResources
Annual premium: $1,995.74
Coverage dates: 9/1/18 - 8/31/19
If you have your own health insurance plan with comparable coverage, you may submit an online waiver to opt out of the Student Health Insurance Plan.
A "Waiver Accepted" or "Waiver Denied" message will be displayed immediately following your waiver submission (keep documentation of this waiver decision for future reference if needed). To avoid a charge on your first bill, please complete the waiver by August 1, 2018. At the beginning of every academic year, a waiver is required to opt out of the SHIP.
If you should have any questions about the waiver or problems completing the online form, please contact USI Insurance:
