Beginning in fall 2014, all University of San Diego full-time students are required to carry health insurance. This requirement ensures that students in need of health and/or mental health care beyond the scope of services provided at USD by the on-campus Wellness Units, can access the appropriate care and resources in the community.
Many students and families have already completed the process of submitting a decision form to either enroll in or waive out of the plan at the beginning of this fall semester. Thank you very much for your effort in submitting your information. Please note that this process takes place every academic year in which a new form will need to be submitted at that time.
*Students enrolled in the USD Student Health Insurance Plan in need of access to providers in the community can seek a referral from a clinician at the USD Student Health Center to have their deductible waived.
New Incoming Students and Returning Students from Studying Abroad for Spring 2015:
Students will notice a charge for the USD sponsored Student Health Insurance Plan on their Student Account. This charge is automatically placed on their account at registration. If a student already has insurance and wants to waive coverage please follow these instructions to remove this charge. Before making a decision, we do encourage you to compare benefits to determine a policy that may better serve the student's needs.
The USD sponsored policy provides comprehensive care that allows students to waive deductibles if referrals are generated by the Student Health Center.
To enroll or waive, students must complete the online Decision Form, which will be available starting November 14, 2014. Students have the option to actively enroll in the USD sponsored plan. If planning to enroll, to ensure insurance cards are received before the beginning of the spring semester, please actively enroll before January 16, 2015.
