University Health Insurance Coverage
All full-time TU students are required to have health insurance coverage and are automatically enrolled and charged for the University-sponsored student health insurance plan. Information is available online http://www.collegiaterisk.com/schools/oglethorpe-university.aspx describing the coverage, fee and limits of plan. Students may only be exempt from the school-sponsored insurance plan by showing evidence of personal health insurance by completing the online waiver to the insurance company by the stated deadline. Waivers will not be accepted by the business office. If a student does not submit a waiver, the cost of the insurance will be added to his or her student statement.
Waiver of coverage
Students with health insurance can waive coverage under the university sponsored plan.To do so, students are required to complete the online waiver before the deadline of August 27, 2012 (for Fall Semester) or by January 22, 2012 (for Spring Semester).Waivers received for the Fall semester will apply for the full academic year.Requests for exemption after the deadline may not be honored. If you do nothing, the cost of the insurance will be added to your student statement.
