Health Insurance

2014-2015 Student Health Insurance

In order to ensure that all students are able to fully participate in their academic life, Dickinson College has established the following policy regarding health insurance for students:

If you are a full-time matriculating student who is not a U.S. citizen you are required to be enrolled in the Dickinson College Student Health Insurance and will be automatically enrolled. All other full-time matriculating students attending Dickinson College must enroll in or waive out of the insurance coverage offered by the College. Students who wish to waive out of the coverage must be U.S. Citizens and provide proof of private coverage. Students who do not enroll or waive by the end of the open enrollment period will be automatically enrolled in the Dickinson College Student Health Insurance.

Once a student is enrolled in the insurance a cancellation will only be allowed for certain life changing events and must be approved by the Carrier. No cancellation will be allowed for any reason if the insurance has been utilized by the student.

The purchase of the student health insurance policy provides an annual term of health insurance with effective dates of 08/01/2014 thru 07/31/2015 at a cost of $1,656.00.  Any student who has not enrolled or waived by August 15, 2014 may have a hold placed on their student account. Any student who has not enrolled or waived by September 1, 2014 will have a charge of $828.00 placed on their account.

This year Dickinson College will be invoicing the cost of the Student Health Insurance in semi-annual amounts.  The amount of $828.00 will be charged on the July invoice or the first invoice following enrollment.  The remainder will be charged on the December invoice.

Information on enrolling in or waiving out of the student health insurance will be sent to the students' home addresses in early July. Beginning June 27, 2014 you may enroll or waive using the following links:
