As a full-time student at the University of Rochester, you participate in the comprehensive student health plan offered by the University Health Service (UHS). The health plan includes the mandatory health fee and health insurance.
All full-time students must complete the Online Insurance Process during the appropriate open enrollment period. The Fall Open Enrollment period is for students who are continuing their studies and for students who are beginning their studies in the fall. The Winter Open Enrollment period is for students who are beginning their studies in January. Students who begin their full-time studies in May need to complete the insurance process in two steps. See "If you are beginning studies in May" below for details.
Students who begin their full-time studies in May must complete the insurance process in two steps.
STEP 1: The first step is complete the Health Insurance Enrollment Form or the Health Insurance Waiver form for the summer months (May 1 – July 31). The forms will be available in March. Requests for waiver will be audited to assure compliance with University criteria before waiver approval. The form should be returned to the UHS Insurance Advisor by fax (585-756-0263), by e-mail (firstname.lastname@example.org), or in person (Room 204, UHS Building on the University of Rochester River Campus). To receive the form, write to the UHS Insurance Advisors at email@example.com.
STEP 2: The second step is to complete the online Health Insurance Enrollment/Waiver Process for the upcoming academic year (August 1 – July 31) during Fall Open Enrollment (June 1 – Sept 15). The final deadline for completing the online insurance process is September 15.
The University-sponsored insurance plan is offered by Aetna Student Health. For information about the Aetna Student Health insurance plan, check the Aetna Student Health web site.
