All full-time undergraduate, School of Pharmacy and Physician Assistant Studies students will have a charge on their USJ student account for the annual student insurance premium (rates below). Full-time students in the Program for Adult Learners and any Graduate students who living on-campus are also included in this requirement. Students who are currently enrolled in a comparable plan may decline by performing the annual online waiver here. Please be advised that the credit will not post to your account on a real-time basis. However, the earlier you perform the waiver, the earlier a credit will appear on your account. The final waiver deadline is Sept. 15, 2017. If you do not qualify for or complete a waiver by the deadline, you will be enrolled in the plan.
Graduate (SOP/PA/Resident) Insurance Fee: $3045.00
Those who will be enrolling can find plan materials posted at the same web site. Materials for the 2017-2018 plan year will be posted in July on the Gallagher Student Health web site.
IMPORTANT: There has been a carrier change. The new carrier is National Guardian Life; the Preferred Provider Network is Cigna.
NOTE: When you visit the Gallagher Student Health web site for the first time you will be asked to create an account. This is entirely separate from your USJ account and you do not need to use any USJ affiliated passwords or user names.
**Health insurance waiver must be submitted to have this fee waived.
