Student Health Insurance

Introduction

To ensure students have adequate health insurance, Brown University automatically enrolls students in health insurance.

Policy Statement

By vote of the Corporation of the University, all registered students are automatically enrolled in the Student Health Insurance Plan. Participation in this Student Health Insurance Plan is required unless a Waiver is completed and submitted each academic year by the Waiver deadline.

The Student Health Insurance Plan supplements Health Services located in Andrews House, 13 Brown Street.  

Definitions

Student Health Insurance Plan:  The Brown University Student Health Insurance Plan is designed to protect against unexpected medical expense and to meet most students’ needs while on campus and throughout the Policy Year.

Procedures

Students wishing to waive the Student Health Insurance Plan must complete an insurance waiver form prior to the waiver deadline.

All Brown University students must be covered by a Medical Insurance Plan, comparable to the Student Health Insurance Plan, in order to waive the Student Health Insurance Plan offered by Brown University.

  • The waiver deadline for annual coverage is July 31st. For students who are newly enrolled for 2nd semester, the deadline is January 1.
  • Students who do not complete and submit the Waiver by the printed deadline will be automatically enrolled in the Student Health Insurance Plan and the fee will remain on their student account.
