All students are required to have some form of health insurance that meets the minimum essential coverage standards of the Affordable Care Act.
Therefore, all students enrolled in one or more credit hours in a degree-seeking or financial aid eligible certificate program are required to have insurance and are automatically billed for the Student Health Insurance Plan. If you have a comparable insurance plan, you may qualify to waive the Student Health Insurance Plan.
You can waive out of the student insurance plan by filling out an insurance waiver. Your personal insurance must meet all of the requirements to be approved. Waivers must be submitted each semester before the stated deadlines.
Students graduating in the Fall will have coverage effective through December 31st. Students graduating in the Spring will have coverage effective through July 31st.
Graduates can opt-in for 1-3 months of Continuation Coverage through CU Anschutz SHIP after the end of the policy term. For example, a student who graduates in Fall 2021 would be eligible to enroll in coverage for Jan-March 2022. The Continuation Coverage enrollment will be available in the student's UHCSR MyAccount.
**Please note that the enrollment request and payment must be received by UHCSR within 14 days after the current coverage expires. Only students who were enrolled in CU Anschutz SHIP for the semester in which they are graduating will be eligible for Continuation Coverage.
