If you are beginning your full-time studies before August 1 (i.e., May, June, July), you must complete the process for enrolling or waiving health insurance in two steps to assure continuation of your coverage decision during the academic year.
STEP 1: From program start date through July 31
Complete the Health Insurance Enrollment Form or the Health Insurance Waiver Form before the start of your program using the appropriate paper copy of the form. This step documents your insurance coverage from your program start date through July 31. Write to firstname.lastname@example.org to request the appropriate form.
Return your completed form to the UHS Insurance Advisor by fax (585-756-0263), by e-mail (email@example.com), by hand delivery (Room 204, UHS Building), or mail (UHS Insurance Advisor, University Health Service, PO Box 270617, Rochester, NY 14627).
STEP 2: From August 1 through July 31
Complete the Online Insurance Process by September 15. This online process documents your insurance coverage from August 1 through July 31. Completing Step 2 is necessary even if you will be continuing the same insurance selection you made in Step 1.
The link to the Online Insurance Process is in the Quick Links box on the UHS home page (www.rochester.edu/uhs). The site is scheduled to open on June 6. We recommend completing Step 2 as soon as possible after the online process site opens.
If you do not complete the Online Insurance Process by September 15, you will be enrolled in the UR Student Health Insurance Plan for the year. If you are planning to enroll in the UR Student Health Insurance Plan, please do not wait to be automatically enrolled. Waiting to be automatically enrolled could lead to problems if you should need to use the insurance coverage during the first half of the fall semester.
