University Student Health Insurance
College Hall 314
Remember, you must waive the student health insurance plan each semester. This allows you to provide proof of alternative coverage – if between the Fall and Spring semesters your family or independent health insurance plan changes, you can update this each semester.
We accept Medicare, family, and independent health insurance plans that are ACA-compliant. We also accept Washington, D.C., Maryland, and Virginia Medicaid plans.
However, please note that Medicaid plans from outside D.C., Maryland, or Virginia are not accepted. Out-of-area plans will not cover medical services outside of your home state.
If you have your own ACA-compliant health insurance or coverage under your parent’s ACA-compliant health insurance plan, you can use that to waive the University student health insurance plan.
It’s important to ensure that your health insurance plan meets the university’s requirements, including coverage for preventive care, emergency services, and ACA compliance.
To learn more about the specific requirements and to access the waiver form, visit our website at gu.live/SHIP. The website will provide you with step-by-step instructions on how to submit the waiver.
Remember, as a full-time student, understanding and complying with the University’s health insurance policy is crucial. Take the necessary steps to waive or provide proof of coverage each semester.
