Please read this page carefully as it contains important information about complying with the University’s Student Health Insurance Policy. Action is required on your part to avoid a charge to your fall semester bill
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 1, 2016 to July 31, 2017. 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, $1,546 for Undergraduates and Graduates. Please note the following:
- To AVOID a charge on the fall semester bill, students must successfully complete the online waiver process prior to August 31, 2016.
- Students who take no action prior to August 31, 2016 will receive the insurance premium charge on their fall semester bill. Students will then have until August 31, 2016to complete the waiver/enrollment process. For those who successfully complete the waiver process by August 31, 2016, the original insurance premium charge will be removed from their University account.
- Students who fail to complete the online waiver/enrollment process prior to August 31, 2016 will be automatically enrolled in the University-sponsored insurance plan. After this August 31, 2016 deadline, these students will be irrevocably enrolled and responsible for the full annual 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 LaSalle 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 August 31, 2016. Students not covered by another comparable insurance plan must enroll in the University-sponsored health insurance plan.
