Student Health Insurance

It is university policy that each student enrolled in a program at the university on a full-time basis (9 credits or more) must have adequate health insurance coverage. All full-time students will be automatically billed for health insurance, and will be mailed an information packet. Students may review the Plan benefits by going to and click on Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey. Students will be asked to choose the university's insurance plan or waive participation if they have current health insurance that meets minimum requirements set by the university. Information about waiver forms is available at campus offices or by visiting and selecting Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey. Students who do not respond by the waiver deadline will be automatically enrolled in the plan and will be responsible for paying the premium. To submit the online waiver, select "Waiver Form" on the left of the page. When your waiver form has been successfully submitted, you will see a waiver confirmation number and receive a confirmation email to your university email address shortly thereafter. If you do not receive the confirmation email, your form may not have been submitted and you should contact University Health Plans at 1-800-437-6448 for assistance. Nonmatriculated and part-time students are welcome to purchase insurance. The university's health provider is United Health Plan. Students interested in purchasing health insurance should contact one of the campus offices. The plan does offer coverage for one's spouse and children at an additional cost.
