Health Insurance

Every student is required to be covered by a medical insurance policy. Full-time students must provide proof of adequate insurance each academic year by completing the online waiver at You may log in as a student or a parent/guardian may log in as a guest. You will receive an email with your confirmation number when you have completed the waiver.  

Please be sure your insurance is accepted in the state of Pennsylvania and meets the requirements listed below:  

  • Provides coverage for the academic year

  • The carrier is licensed to do business in the United States

  • The carrier has a U.S. based office

  • The carrier has a U.S. telephone number

If documentation of adequate insurance coverage is not provided by the second Friday in September (fall semester) or the first Friday in February (spring semester), the Business Office reserves the right to charge the appropriate health and accident insurance fee to the student’s account.

It is the students’ responsibility to ensure that they are covered either through private insurance or through the University sponsored health insurance plan.  Any changes in your insurance coverage should always be reported to Student Health Services.

*ATTENTION: Kaiser Permanente and Empire Plan members

Please be aware that these carriers are typically not accepted at health care provider offices or pharmacies in Pennsylvania.  If you are a member of one of these plans while attending the university, please be advised that you will have to pay out of pocket for prescriptions and care by local providers. We strongly recommend that students consider a health insurance carrier who will cover care within the state of Pennsylvania.
