Students who will be graduating at the end of Spring Quarter 2014, and who enrolled in the 2013-2014 U-SHIP plan, are eligible to sign up for continuation coverage when their U-SHIP coverage terminates on August 31, 2014. Students may also purchase continuation coverage for their dependents who currently are enrolled in U-SHIP (whose coverage similarly will terminate on August 31, 2014).
Continuation coverage is available directly through our insurance carrier UnitedHealthcare StudentResources. Premiums for continuation coverage must be received within 31 days of the termination date of coverage (in this case, August 31, 2014). Students – and dependents currently enrolled in U-SHIP – pay per month for up to 6 months of continuing insurance coverage. If a student finds a job that pays for health insurance, the student can cancel continuation coverage, however there is no premium refund.
Students whose coverage terminates for other reasons, i.e, taking a Leave of Absence, also may purchase continuation coverage. Premiums for continuation coverage must be received within 31 days of the student's coverage terminating, which occurs when the student's status changes in Gargoyle.
Premiums for Plan Continuation Coverage are:
2+ Dependents: $1,181/month
