University-Sponsored Student Accident & Sickness Insurance Plan
Student Accident and Sickness Insurance Plan for the University of Connecticut Regional Campuses.
The cost is $2,564 per year. The University-sponsored plan is designed to provide basic medical insurance protection. It is not intended to provide comprehensive coverage for all medical needs. We urge you to carefully read the brochure to be aware of the plan's coverage limits. Detailed Student Accident and Sickness Insurance Policy Information To enroll in the University-sponsored plan, no further action is necessary if you are registered for at least six credits. Enrollment will be automatic and the premium will be added to the fee bill of all students registered for six credits or more. Students registered for less than six credits wishing to enroll are directed to contact the Bailey Insurance Agencies at 1-800-321-4449.
The University uses what is called a "hard waiver" system to assure student health coverage. This means that law students enrolled in 9 or more credits will be AUTOMATICALLY enrolled in and billed for the University-sponsored plan. If you want coverage under the University-sponsored plan, do nothing; you are automatically enrolled. (Students enrolled in less than 9 credits who wish to enroll in the student health plan should contact the Bailey Agency directly at their number below; if you do not carry at least a 9-credit load you will not be automatically enrolled.)
On-line Insurance Waiver
If you are covered by your private health insurance (or spouse's) and a student health insurance charge appears on your student fee bill, an on-line waiver must be completed in order to avoid having the University's insurance charge added to your fee bill. The waiver enables you to decline (waive out of) the plan sponsored by the University because you are covered under another plan providing equal or better coverage. The on-line waiver is only available for use until September 15.
In order to complete the waiver process, you must use your seven-digit PeopleSoft student administration system ID to access your Student Center. This ID number can be found at the top left corner of your Student Fee Bill. Log on to your account, and from the HOME page, navigate to:
Menu> Self Service > Student Center > Finances > Student Permissions > Health Insurance Waiver.
If you fail to complete the waiver in PeopleSoft, it will be assumed that you accept coverage offered under the University sponsored health insurance plan, and the charge for that coverage will remain on your fee bill.
