Deadline to Waive Student Health Insurance, Aug. 6

Deadline to Waive Student Health Insurance, Aug. 6

The deadline for waiving/declining Fairfield University student health insurance is Tuesday, August 6, 2019.

Fairfield University requires that all full-time undergraduate students maintain or purchase a health insurance policy.

Under Fairfield University's "hard waiver" program, full-time undergraduate students are automatically enrolled (and billed) each July, in the University-sponsored health insurance policy for the upcoming academic year. A charge for this policy appears on the domestic student's tuition bill. However, if the domestic student has access to comparable or better health insurance through other means (e.g. parents' coverage), and does not wish to be enrolled in the University-sponsored plan, the domestic student must complete an online waiver to provide proof of coverage. Students completing the waiver to decline the University-sponsored plan will receive a full credit on their tuition bill.

The online waiver form may be completed by following these steps:

  • Log onto my.Fairfield.edu (student NetID and password required)
  • Enter "health insurance waiver" in search tool
  • Click "Student Health Insurance Waiver" icon
  • Complete the form
  • Click submit button on the bottom of the screen

On the Bursar page, beginning in early July, students will be able to verify that the waiver has been successful:

  • Log onto my.Fairfield.edu
  • Search "Online Billing and Payment - Student" and select "Launch"
  • Select "View Current Activity, Fall 2019"

Domestic Undergraduate Students

Students will see the initial $2,277.00 charge for the student health insurance plan. Students who have submitted the waiver will see a corresponding $2,277.00 credit. (Note: The credit may take up to three business days after the waiver is submitted to appear in the Fall 2019 activity).

To view policy details, please visit www.gallagherstudent.com/fairfield. Domestic students coming from other geographic areas that carry HMO or network-based coverage are strongly encouraged to purchase the Fairfield University-sponsored plan.

International Students

Fairfield University requires all full-time undergraduate and graduate international students to purchase the University sponsored health insurance policy. The University enrolls each international student in its sponsored health insurance policy for the upcoming academic year. A charge for this policy appears on the student's tuition bill. International (VISA holding students) are enrolled on a mandatory basis and cannot waive coverage.
