Welcome to the Waive Your School's Insurance Center!
This page is for those students who wish to opt-out (waive) out of the coverage under their school’s student insurance plan, and have the fee removed from their student account. The school’s student insurance plan can only be waived if the student has coverage under another acceptable insurance plan.
Submitting a waiver, is as easy as 123! The first step to waive out of your school’s student insurance coverage is to verify that you are a “hard waiver student.
Full Time Students
If you are a…
Full-time domestic Undergraduate Students taking 12 or more credit hours, all full time domestic Graduate students taking 9 or more credit hours and all full time students as defined by the the Student’s department. If this is you, then you would be considered a hard waiver student. Hard waiver students are required to have health insurance to attend Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey. You must complete an on-line waiver or enroll in the University’s policy, each semester.
Students who do not respond by the deadline, will be automatically enrolled in the Fall or Spring coverage and will be responsible to pay that semester’s premium.
- Fall Waiver Deadline: 10/10/14
- Spring/Summer Waiver Deadline: 3/15/15
- Summer Waiver Deadline: 6/30/15 (For full time undergraduate students taking 6 or more credits and full time graduate students taking 6 or more credits in the summer term and accepted into Rutgers in the Fall 2013 semester)
After you verify that you are a hard waiver student and have other insurance, here’s what you will need:
- Your current health insurance plan ID card;
- Your health insurance brochure or plan description (or you might want mom & dad’s phone number handy to help answer some of the waiver questions.) There might be a few questions about your current plan.
Once you have completed the waiver form, an email will automatically be sent to the email address you provided.
