Student Health Insurance Program
Important note for those on the UNC Insurance plan when the student health center is closed: Family Walk-In Clinic will honor the $20.00 copay policy that you have at the student health center. When the health center is closed you can choose to be seen at the Family Walk-In Clinic with a $20.00 copay and everything that is done at the clinic will be covered 100%. If you have lab work or other testing that is sent to an outside lab, this will be applied to your deductible. If you have questions, please contact Nicky Weglin at 970-351-1915 or email email@example.com
All Undergraduate students taking 9 or more credit hours and all Degree Seeking Graduate students with 6 or more credits, regardless of the type of class (on campus, off campus, online only) are required to have full coverage health insurance. Students who meet the credit hour criteria will be automatically enrolled in the UNC Student Health Insurance Plan and the cost will be added to your UNC student tuition bill.
Automatic charges and enrollment occur for fall semesters and spring semesters. Any student on the insurance plan in the spring semester will automatically have coverage for summer months.
For students taking summer courses, charges and enrollment do NOT automatically occur. If you would like to purchase summer insurance, please contact the insurance office at 970-351-1915 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
If you have other insurance and wish to waive the UNC insurance plan, you must complete
the online waiver by the deadline which is always 10 days after classes start.
All international students must follow the waiver process through the Center for International Education website. For waiver instructions go to: https://www.unco.edu/cie/international-student-scholar-services/forms.aspx. International students cannot waive on the UNC URSA site. You must go through the Center for International Education.
Domestic students have the option to waive out of the UNC insurance plan by completing the online insurance waiver showing proof of other health insurance coverage prior to the deadline, which is always the 10th day of classes each semester. If a waiver is completed for the UNC Student Health Insurance Plan for Fall semester, the enrollment and subsequent charge for Spring semester will also be waived. If you have questions regarding re-enrollment in the UNC Insurance Plan, contact email@example.com or call 970-351-1915. If you are an international student and have questions regarding the UNC health insurance requirement, or waiving the school plan, contact the Center for International Education.
Veterans: Check your VA education benefits before waiving the school insurance plan. Many times those benefits will cover the cost of this plan that can be used anywhere Cigna insurance is accepted. Please contact VA.SCO@unco.edu with your questions
