Health and wellness are important for academic success during college. Students and parents are encouraged to familiarize themselves with the following information, policies and resources:
Roosevelt University is pleased to partner with Academic Health Plans (AHP) providers with Blue Cross Blue Shield of Illinois as our student health insurance provider for the 2015-16 academic year. Participation in the student health insurance plan is:
The annual student health insurance fee ($2549) is charged to fall semester students who are required to have health insurance. Students have two options:
1) enroll in the Roosevelt student plan or
2) waive the insurance because they have equivalent coverage. Resident student and International student waiver deadline is September 15, 2015 (COLLEGE OF PHARMACY WAIVER DEADLINE IS JULY 16, 2015)
PLEASE NOTE: International students may waive only if they are able to show proof of an embassy sponsored health insurance plan or a U.S. employer sponsored plan and complete the waiver process. All other international students will be automatically enrolled in the Roosevelt University plan. International students should not purchase any other insurance plans because other plans will not be accepted.
The $2549 annual insurance charge will appear on your account unless you waive before the advertised deadline. Students must successfully complete the online waiver application to be successfully waived from this requirement. If you do not complete the waiver or you are not approved by the deadline of SEPTEMBER 15, 2015 (College of Pharmacy waiver deadline is July 16, 2015) you will be automatically enrolled in the plan and will be responsible for the $2549 payment of the Roosevelt insurance plan. Please call 312-341-3525 with questions or email firstname.lastname@example.org
The online waiver for 2015-16 is available at roosevelt.myahpcare.com
