The University will automatically provide and charge for health insurance for those residence students who have not waived the University provided insurance. The charge for insurance will be added to the semester invoice which is due and payable with the tuition and fee charges. Insurance students are not added to the health insurance roster until your term bill is paid. You will receive your insurance card login information email directly from University Health Plans within 10-14 business days of submission by the University. There are no paper ID cards. Please contact University Health Plans directly for help obtaining your card online.

Residence students are required to submit their current and valid insurance for New York State information online at universityhealthplans.com to waive the insurance coverage by September 7, 2018. A $100 penalty will be charged if a waiver is received between September 7, 2018 and October 5, 2018. There will be NO WAIVERS ACCEPTED after October 5, 2018.
