Sometimes things don't happen on schedule, and you have to change your health insurance coverage. We call those qualifying life events. Examples include turning 26 and losing your parent's health insurance, getting married, having a baby, or loss of employment. There are a few other qualifying life events as well. Please email if you believe you have a QLE, need to make changes to your coverage, or have any questions. If you're an international student, please email email@example.com.
Note: in your request to change coverage, include documentation of the QLE date.
If you graduate and your plan is expiring, you are eligible to apply to continue your enrollment for a maximum of 60 days. You must enroll for continuation coverage within 31 days of the expiration of your plan. For more information or to get an enrollment form, click here.
COBRA is not provided under this plan.
For other short-term health insurance options, United HealthCare has a sister company, UHOne, that offers a variety of health, dental, and vision plans that may meet your needs. Other companies also provide individual short-term coverage that you can find by doing a Google search.
In addition to health insurance coverage, United Healthcare StudentResources also offers optional dental and vision coverage. These options are both twelve-month policies, and they can be selected individually and separately from the health insurance coverage. The open enrollment period for this coverage is during the Fall semester only.
For more information regarding the optional dental and vision coverage, go to the United HealthCare StudentResources website.
