Student Health Insurance
In August 2009, the UNC Board of Governors approved the implementation of a 'hard waiver' student health insurance requirement on all sixteen 4-year campuses beginning in fall 2010. The term hard waiver means any student meeting three specific criteria is required to show evidence of an existing 'credible coverage' health insurance policy OR enroll in the UNC system-wide plan.
More information on the UNC health insurance requirement:
Waive;- Any student meeting the university-sponsored health plan requirements who has other credible insurance (e.g. individual policy, coverage through a parent, Medicaid, Medicare, etc.) is able to waive out of the University-sponsored plan easily and quickly on-line. Click the "Waive" button to the left and enter the requested information. Verification of this information will begin in June 2013.
Enroll-Any student meeting the university-sponsored health plan requirements who does NOT have other credible insurance (e.g. individual policy, coverage through a parent, Medicaid, Medicare, etc.) will be automatically enrolled in the University-sponsored plan, but if you would like to confirm your participation in this plan, you may sign-up by clicking on the "Enroll" button to the left and enter the requested information. The premium will be automatically billed to your student account.
