Students who will be graduating at the end of Fall Quarter 2014, and who enrolled in the 2014-2015 U-SHIP plan, are eligible to sign up for continuation coverage when their U-SHIP coverage terminates on January 4, 2015. Continuation coverage is available directly through the insurance carrier, UnitedHealthcare StudentResources. Premiums for continuation coverage must be received within 31 days of the termination date of coverage (in this case, January 4, 2015). 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.
Premiums for Plan Continuation Coverage are:
|Students/Dependents in Basic Plan coverage||Students/Dependents in Opt-In / Seminary coverage|
|Student - $381/month||Student - $667/month|
|Spouse - $381/month||Spouse - $667/month|
|Child - $381/month||Child - $667/month|
