Health Insurance for Graduating Students
Graduating students on their parent's insurance plan can usually continue until age 26. Graduates who are enrolled on the University-sponsored student health insurance plan automatically continue that coverage through July 31 (December 31 if graduating in December). Ending student coverage as a result of graduation is a "qualifying life event" that allows enrollment in another plan effective August 1. It is generally best to find a plan that has a network of providers where you will be living or one that offers nation-wide coverage. Go to for further information.

Receiving Care at UHS after Graduation
Graduates who will continue to reside in the Rochester area are welcome to continue to receive care from their UHS provider. Graduates are seen on a "Fee for Service" basis.
