All full-time undergraduate students are automatically enrolled in,
and billed for, the Student Health Insurance Plan.

If you are currently insured by a plan that provides comparable coverage, you can waive enrollment. Graduate and part-time students may enroll on a voluntary basis.

If an online waiver form is not completed by the deadline, you will remain enrolled in and billed for the Student Health Insurance Plan for the entire policy year.

Not all plans are considered comparable, such as out-of-state Medicaid plans, certain HMOs and managed care plans. Be sure your current insurance plan provides coverage and access to providers in Fairfield, Conn., before waiving coverage.
