Summer 2015

ATTENTION:  La Salle University Student and Parents:

All registered Undergraduate Day Students, all Resident Students, all registered International Students, all Undergraduate Evening Students registered for 12 or more credits, and all Graduate Students registered for six (6) or more credits or in a full-time program, are required to carry health insurance coverage, either through the University-sponsored plan or through an alternative comparable plan, such as coverage on a parent’s health insurance plan.  Prior to first attendance at the University, and annually thereafter, students in the identified categories must complete the online student health insurance waiver/enrollment process.

As part of supporting students’ academic success and overall wellness, the University sponsors a specially tailored Injury and Sickness insurance plan for full-time students (and their dependents) in partnership with First Risk Advisors.  The University-sponsored plan is underwritten by United Healthcare Insurance Company and is effective from August 4, 2015 to August 3, 2016.  More detailed information regarding the policy is available for review at www.firststudent.com.  The annual insurance premium for the University-sponsored plan is charged to the student account, $1,476.00 for Undergraduates and Graduates.  Please note the following:

  1. To AVOID a charge on the fall semester bill, students must successfully complete the online waiver process prior to June 26, 2015.
  1. Students who take no action prior to June 26, 2015 will receive the insurance premium charge on their fall semester bill. Students will then have until September 9, 2015 to complete the waiver/enrollment process.  For those who successfully complete the waiver process by September 9, 2015, the original insurance premium charge will be removed from their University account.
  1. Students who fail to complete the online waiver/enrollment process prior to September 9, 2015 will be automatically enrolled in the University-sponsored insurance plan. After this September 9, 2015 deadline, these students will be irrevocably enrolled and responsible for payment to La Salle University for the health insurance coverage.

In order to complete the waiver/enrollment process, please go to www.firststudent.com, select La Salle University, click on the Waive Your Schools Insurance button or the Enroll Now button and follow the directions.  Once the process is complete, do not forget to print out a receipt for your records.  The deadline to waive the annual insurance premium is September 9, 2015.  Students not covered by another comparable insurance plan must enroll in the University-sponsored health insurance plan.

If you have questions regarding coverage, please go to www.firststudent.com or call customer service at 800-505-4160.  Best wishes for a healthy and rewarding 2015-2016 academic year.

Sincerely,
