Student Health Insurance
All University of New Haven full-time undergraduate and international graduate students are required to have health insurance and are automatically billed for the cost of the University sponsored student health insurance plan. You may review the plan benefits offered and administered by United Healthcare at www.uhcsr.com/newhaven. The 2018-2019 health insurance policy runs from August 1, 2018 through July 31, 2019.
The University student health insurance plan is mandatory for all full-time (undergraduate and graduate) international students and coverage cannot be waived. Further information regarding this policy can be found below.
If you are a domestic full-time undergraduate student starting in the fall 2018 semester and wish to waive the coverage offered by the University, you must submit an online waiver through the following website: https://studentcenter.uhcsr.com/newhaven.
All waivers must be received no later than Friday, August 31, 2018.
If a waiver is not received by August 31, the student will be automatically enrolled in the University sponsored health insurance plan and will be responsible for paying the $1,400 plan premium directly to the University.
- An online waiver will need to be processed each academic year should you wish to waive coverage.
- The only way to waive the University sponsored health insurance is online.
- Once the waiver deadline has passed, you will not be able to waive coverage until the next academic year.
You will need your student ID number and certain identifying information about your current insurance policy in order to complete the waiver process. Once your online waiver has been successfully submitted, you will receive a confirmation of approval or denial via email. Please save this email confirmation for your records. The Bursar’s Office will be notified of your waiver and it will be applied to your student account within 7 days.
