Alternate Health Coverage
Individuals may elect to have alternate insurance coverage other than the Student Health Insurance Plan, either through a policy of their own choosing or through an alternate insurance provider. In either of these cases, students must take specific action in order to have the automatic insurance charges removed from their term bill, including:
- Submitting to the Center for Global Services a waiver form to opt out of the university's student insurance plan, which must be accompanied by documentation of the alternate coverage showing it meets or exceeds Rutgers Minimum Health Insurance Requirements.
- Continuing to submit this completed waiver at the the start of each semester that you wish to opt out of the Student Health Insurance Plan.
- Understanding that deadlines apply, and failure to waive by the established deadline will result in you being responsible for payment of the premium charged through your term bill.
