Student Insurance Enrollment Information

General Information

The annual master policy becomes effective on August 1 and terminates on July 31 but students are billed in two installments for the Fall and Spring/Summer coverage separately. The Fall coverage period begins on 8/1 and ends on 12/31 and the Spring/Summer coverage begins on 1/1 and ends on 7/31. These coverage dates and premium rates are set by the school in accordance with the contract and cannot be changed or prorated further. This policy is a Non-Renewable One-Year Term Policy.

Students may elect to enroll in the student health insurance anytime during a coverage period (up to 31 days before the last day of class for that academic term) but the rates are not pro-rated further. Students must meet the Eligibility requirements each time you pay a premium to continue your insurance coverage (see Insurance Eligibility on the Student Insurance page). Refunds of premiums are allowed only upon entry into the armed forces. The Enrollment FAQ's may answer any questions you have regarding the insurance enrollment process.

Important Note:
  • It is the student's responsibility to verify that your Student Account has been billed appropriately for the Health Insurance Policy charge.
  • If you do not see the Health Insurance Policy charge on your Student Account, please contact the [[, Student Insurance Coordinator]] at the university immediately.

Insured students who have graduated, withdrawn or changed from full to part-time status AND have been continuously insured under W&M's policy for at least 3 consecutive months are eligible to continue their coverage for a period of not more than 180 days/6 months under the school's policy in effect at the time of the Continuation. Insured students who are leaving the university must apply for the Continuation coverage within 31 days of the termination of your current student coverage and must enroll directly with UnitedHealthcare StudentResources by logging into your UHCSR MyAccount and using the link found in the Action Center or Home page. (Note: link will NOT be available until 1 month before and 1 month after the policy expiration date of 7/31.)

Unfortunately, it is not possible to enroll in the W&M policy for the first time under the Continuation coverage; you MUST have been continuously insured under either the Fall or Spring/Summer coverage periods to be eligible.
