Insurance Requirement

Enroll and/or waive by July 31

Insurance Requirement

Due to the extremely high cost of health care in the United States and the importance of adequate health insurance coverage, William & Mary requires all full-time undergraduate and graduate students and all F-1 and J-1 international students to have health insurance coverage throughout the school year as a condition of enrollment. Every academic year, these students must either elect to enroll or waive the W&M-sponsored Student Insurance Plan to comply with this requirement. Falsifying or misrepresenting insurance information is a violation of the Honor Code and will be reported.

The university sponsors a comprehensive Student Health Insurance Plan, provided by UnitedHealthcare StudentResources, that meets the Affordable Care Act mandate and is categorized as a Platinum plan.

Enrollment in the Student Insurance Plan (By July 31)

Students who elect to enroll in the W&M-sponsored Student Insurance Plan must submit a '17-'18 Enrollment Form (expected to be available no later July 15) and are financially responsible for the Health Insurance Policy charges posted on their Student Account.

Waiving the Student Insurance Plan (By July 31)

Students who elect to waive the Student Insurance Plan because they already maintain adequate health insurance coverage must submit a '17-'18 Waiver Form (available July 1) to avoid being financially responsible for the Health Insurance Policy charges posted to their Student Account.

Failure to Enroll Into or Waive Coverage

Students who neither elect nor waive coverage by July 31 will be enrolled in Student Insurance Plan and will be financially responsible for the Health Insurance Policy charges posted to their Student Account. 

ENROLL OR WAIVE Coverage (Available July 1, 2017)
