If you do not need the health insurance plan, you must waive the school-sponsored insurance plan each academic year and provide proof of alternative coverage. It is important for you to make an informed health assessment each year to make sure you are not left without adequate coverage that could hinder your academic progress.
To Submit a Waiver:
Waivers can be completed at http://www.firststudent.com. You will need the information that is available on your Insurance Provider ID card. This can be found on your current health insurance plan ID card. PLEASE PRINT the document before you submit. This copy will be used as one of your receipts. You will also need to print the message after submission of the document. All full time students that go through the waiver process are required to have both documents as proof of coverage. If you have completed a waiver for the fall term you do not need to complete another for the spring semester. If you encounter difficulties waiving the insurance, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
