Student health insurance

UGA offers two student health insurance plans:

  1. Mandatory Plan (plan for mandated graduate and undergraduate students)
  2. Voluntary Plan (plan for other students not eligible for the mandatory plan)


Why should you consider student health insurance?

Mandatory Plan

*Special Information about the summer-only Enrollment and Waiver Period

The enrollment and waiver period for summer-only 2017 is April 17, 2017 – June 15, 2017.
Enrollment and waiver information for fall 2017 coverage will be announced at a later date.

Who must enroll or waiver summer-only coverage?
  • The only students that can enroll or waive during the summer-only enrollment and waiver period are students who are newly-mandated during the summer 2017 semester (i.e., international students with a J1 or F1 visa enrolling during summer 2017 semester who were not enrolled in classes during spring 2017 semester or graduate students newly awarded a graduate assistantship tuition waiver for summer 2017 semester).
  • Students who were enrolled or had an approved waiver during the spring/summer 2017 coverage period do not need to enroll or submit a waiver request again for summer-only coverage.  Enrollments, including dependent enrollments, and waivers for spring/summer 2017 cover the period of January 1 – July 31, 2017.  Students that did not submit a waiver during the spring/summer 2017 waiver period and thus were automatically enrolled in the plan for spring/summer 2017 coverage cannot waive any coverage until the fall 2017 waiver period.

Voluntary Plan 

The enrollment period for summer only coverage (coverage May 1 - July 31, 2017) closes June 15, 2017.

Enrollment for fall 2017 coverage will be announced at a later date.
