The Gallagher Student Health Waiver/Enrollment site will go live on June 1, 2022, for ALL Pharmacy students and June 14, 2022, for all students living in University Housing, International students & PsyD students. 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 listed on your tuition bill. The deadline to submit an online waiver is October 3, 2022. The online waiver cannot be submitted after the deadline, and students who have NOT waived are automatically enrolled in the plan.
To complete the waiver/enrollment form, visit the Gallagher site at gallagherstudent.com/roosevelt. If you plan to waive coverage, your current insurance must be fully compliant with the Affordable Care Act and provide access to doctors near you. To determine if your health insurance meets Roosevelt University’s comparable requirements, please review the comparable coverage checklist.
Most waiver denials are due to Gallagher not being able to verify active coverage. A verification of active coverage letter is required from your insurance company for further review.You can log back into Gallagher’s website and attach the verification letter. For further assistance with the denial email, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Once the health insurance fee is added to your bill, log onto gallagherstudent.com/roosevelt to enroll.
You can obtain your ID card 5-7 business days after eligibility is confirmed. You can retrieve your ID card on Gallagher’s site, which will link you to United Health Care or by following these instructions:
Only students who are part of our “hard waiver” categories are able to sign up for SHIP. You can visit www.healthcare.gov to search for affordable health insurance. If you are a resident of Illinois, you can visit www.getcoveredillinois.gov to locate in-person counselors in your area.
Once your waiver is approved, the charge will be removed from your account within 2-3 business days.
You will be covered under your SHIP until the end of the policy period for which you are enrolled in SHIP, and have paid your premium. If you enrolled and paid for the fall semester and graduate in December, you will be covered until the end of the fall semester coverage period. If you enrolled and paid for annual or spring/summer coverage and graduate in the spring, you will be covered until the end of the policy year. You will not be able to continue your coverage after your policy terminates.
Yes, your plan covers you wherever you are. As long as you're enrolled in SHIP and paid the premium, you'll be covered. Your plan also provides you with 24-hour Worldwide Travel Assistance, which includes services ranging from a lost passport to helping with emergency medical assistance, arranging for emergency medical evacuation and/or repatriation of remains. It’s important to contact UnitedHealthcare Global at 1-800-527-0218 before making arrangements on your own. Otherwise these services will not be covered.
