Mandatory Plan Enrollment

Special Information about Summer-only 2018 Enrollment and Waiver Period
The enrollment and waiver period for summer-only 2018 is April 16, 2018 – June 20, 2018.

Enrollment and waiver information for the 2018-2019 academic year (coverage from August 1, 2018 – July 31, 2019) will be announced at a later date.

Who must enroll or waive 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 2018 semester.  Newly-mandated students are:

  • International students with a J or F visa status enrolling during summer 2018 semester(s) who were not enrolled in classes during spring 2018 semester
  • Graduate students newly awarded a graduate assistantship tuition waiver for summer 2018 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 approved waivers for spring/summer 2018 cover the period of January 1 – July 31, 2018. 

Students that did not submit a waiver request during the spring/summer 2018 waiver period and thus were automatically enrolled in the plan for spring/summer 2018 coverage period cannot waive any coverage until the fall 2018 waiver period.  Students automatically enrolled were enrolled in coverage from January 1- July 31, 2018 and the coverage cannot be prorated and ended early.


Coverage under this plan cannot be prorated or ended early.

Summer-Only 2018 coverage from May 1, 2018 - July 31, 2018.
In order for a mandated student to access the enrollment or waiver system forms, the student must be included on an eligibility file that the University sends to United Healthcare Student Resources. To be included in the eligibility file, you must be enrolled for summer classes and if you have a graduate assistantship, your summer job assignment must be set up in payroll or your graduate assistantship tuition waiver must be applied to your UGA student account.

You must take action to activate your enrollment!
To use your insurance at the earliest possible date, students must finalize their enrollment. In order to activate their coverage and access their insurance card, students should complete the electronic enrollment form at  (select “Enrollment Form”). Use your 9-digit student ID (81x) number and date of birth to access the Enrollment form. Once this enrollment form is submitted, a student’s coverage will be active in the United Healthcare Student Resources system and an ID card will be generated within approximately 48-72 business hours. Your coverage will become active in the insurance company’s system once you complete this enrollment form.

The university will complete the automatic enrollment process in late June 2018 to enroll all mandated students who do not have an approved waiver request for the summer-only coverage period or who did not already complete the Enrollment form.  This process cannot occur until the waiver period closes and all waivers are processed.  If you need to access your insurance prior to this occurring, you need to complete the Enrollment form and activate your coverage yourself!

Insurance cards

Insurance ID cards are available electronically approximately 48-72 business hours after a student completes the Enrollment form. Students can access their insurance ID card electronically 24 hours a day through their United Healthcare My Account.  Create or log into your United Healthcare My Account at United Healthcare will not mail insurance cards unless a student requests one to be mailed through his/her My Account.
