Waiver/Enrollment - Spring 2019
If you currently have a charge on your account for the spring 2019 student health insurance and you wish to waive this charge:
To waive the spring health insurance please email the front and back of your current insurance card to Julie Rave firstname.lastname@example.org Please include your name and student ID number. The waiver deadline is February 22, 2019.
If you currently have a charge on your account for the spring 2019 student health insurance and you wish to keep the insurance coverage please email Julie Rave email@example.com and state that you wish to keep your enrollment in the spring student health insurance plan.
If you do not waive out of the insurance by February 22, 2019, you will be automatically enrolled in the plan and will be responsible for payment of $1121 for the Roosevelt insurance plan.
You may also email email Julie Rave at Roosevelt University, firstname.lastname@example.org with waiver/enrollment questions.
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 Healthcare.gov
- 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.
Insurance for Voluntary Students
- Short term student health insurance:
Students can obtain short term health insurance from https://www.gallagherstudent.com/products/short-term-medical-insurance. These plans are NOT ACA compliant, but offer an excellent temporary solution for students between plans, graduating students, or students waiting for healthcare.gov open enrollment period.
- Healthcare.gov: https://www.healthcare.gov
For students with low or no income, healthcare.gov continues to be an excellent option since the government will provide financial subsidies.
