For Students Beginning Full-time Studies Before August 1, 2013

If you are beginning your full-time studies before August 2013 (i.e., May, June, July), you must complete the Health Insurance Enrollment/Waiver Process in two steps to assure continuation of your coverage decision during the academic year.

STEP 1: From program start date through July 31, 2013 (Enrollment Year 2012-2013)
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, 2013. Write to insurance@uhs.rochester.edu to request the appropriate form.

Return your completed form to the UHS Insurance Advisor by fax (585-756-0263), by e-mail (insurance@uhs.rochester.edu), 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, 2013 through July 31, 2014 (Enrollment Year 2013-2014)
Complete the online Health Insurance Enrollment/Waiver Process by Monday, September 16. This online process documents your insurance coverage from August 1, 2013 through July 31, 2014. 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 Health Insurance Enrollment/Waiver Process is in the pink Quick Links box on the UHS home page (www.rochester.edu/uhs). The site is scheduled to open on May 22. We recommend completing Step 2 as soon as possible after the online insurance site opens.

If you do not complete the online process by September 16, you will be enrolled in the University-sponsored insurance for the year. Not completing the online process and waiting to be enrolled is not recommended due to the problems you are likely to experience if you need to use the insurance in the fall.
