Health Insurance Policy

Student health insurance is mandatory for all full-time students. The policy’s annual cost appears as a separate item on the fall semester bill. Students who have comparable health insurance coverage and choose to waive enrollment in this policy are required to notify UnitedHealthcare via the “Student Services” link on the Marywood homepage. To complete the waiver process students must demonstrate proof of their insurance by providing current plan information (on the insurance ID card) at this link. Once proof of insurance is verified, the charge will be removed. Any student who does not complete the waiver process by the annual fall or spring deadline will be covered through the UnitedHealthcare policy. The charge will remain on the student’s account and must be paid.
