Gallagher Student Health providers with United Health Care as our student health insurance provider.


Participation in the student health insurance plan is required for:

  • All students living in university housing at the Chicago Campus
  • All College of Pharmacy students
  • All currently enrolled F1 and J1 visa International students


The Gallagher Student Health Waiver/Enrollment site will go live on June 16, 2021. You will receive an email with directions on waiving/enrolling when you are able to do so. You cannot waive or enroll until the insurance charge is showing on your tuition bill. The deadline to submit an online waiver is October 1, 2021. The online waiver cannot be submitted after the deadline and students who have not waived will be automatically enrolled in the plan.

To learn more about the Student Health Insurance Plan, Roosevelt University’s insurance requirements and how to waive or enroll, go to If you plan to waive, your current insurance must be fully compliant with the Affordable Care Act and provide access to doctors near your school. Please note, you should have your health insurance ID Card available. If you wish to enroll in the student plan please follow the instructions to enroll.

No Voluntary Enrollment

Only students who are part of our “hard waiver” categories are able to sign up for the Roosevelt Student Health Insurance Plan. These are our Resident, International and Pharmacy students mentioned above who have the insurance requirement. Insurance companies no longer allow us to give all of our students the opportunity to enroll in the Student Health Insurance Plan.

If students who are not in the “required, hard waiver” category are in need of medical insurance, they can go to the government exchange at

  • Because the student who wishes to “voluntarily” enroll but is no longer allowed to enroll for insurance coverage through the school, they can qualify for a special enrollment period citing that they lost qualifying health coverage in the past 60 days or in the next 60 days.
