"If you think WELLNESS is expensive... try ILLNESS"

Student Health Insurance

Fall 2017 Waiver is OPEN

The fall 2017 waiver is open for all students.  As a reminder, waivers must be completed every academic year.

Undergraduate and Graduate EXTENDED Waiver Deadline Date:  September 29, 2017. 

Click Here to complete the waiver or insurance enrollment form, review the school sponsored United Healthcare PPO insurance benefits, as well as other important Gallagher Student Health information.

   Santa Clara University requires all degree seeking students enrolled at least half -time in their school or college to have health insurance (excluding certificate and online programs).   ALL F-1 visa students, regardless of number of units, are required to have insurance.  This requirement helps to protect against unexpected high medical cost and provides access to quality health care.

Students may purchase the university sponsored United Healthcare PPO- Health Insurance Plan, but are not required to if they can provide proof of other insurance coverage comparable to the United Healthcare PPO Health Insurance Plan as outlined in the benefit and waiver requirements below.  Students who are covered by an Affordable Care Act compliant plan and comparable to the Student Health Insurance Plan may complete the online waiver form documenting their own health insurance. The waiver form must be completed by the established deadline date or the student will be automatically enrolled into the school sponsored plan and their student account appropriately charged. The waiver is required every academic year.

Students should review specific waiver and requirement information by selecting their appropriate section under Student Health Insurance.

All students will be subject to the process below: 

  • By July 27, 2017 - Health insurance waiver must be completed to avoid your student account being charged for the annual health insurance.
  • After July 27, 2017 - Online Health Insurance Waiver Form must be completed by August 21, 2017 in order to have the health insurance charge reversed from the student account within 3-5 business days with no late fee.
  •  After August 21, 2017 - Students will be assessed a $100 late payment fee on their student account. This late payment fee cannot be contested and must be paid. 
  • By September 22, 2017 - The Online Health Insurance Waiver must be completed in order to have the health insurance charge reversed within 3-5 business days. All late payment fees will remain on the student account and must be paid.
  • After September 22, 2017 - The health insurance charge will remain on the student account until paid. THIS CHARGE WILL NOT BE REVERSED and must be paid along with all late payment fees. 

The cost of the university sponsored health insurance plan is not covered in your student tuition.  This charge will show up as a separate item on your student account.
