Losing Your Health Coverage?
If you did not enroll during our open enrollment period and have since lost coverage under your original plan, you may qualify for a Qualifying Life Event. A qualifying life event is an event that triggers an open enrollment window for an individual to purchase the Student Health Plan outside of the scheduled open enrollment period upon providing proof of involuntary loss of coverage and payment, within 30 days of losing coverage. (example: marriage, divorce, loss of job, etc.)
The enrollment form, check or money order and the letter of creditable coverage, must be received within 30 days of losing coverage. After 30 days, the student or dependents will no longer be eligible to enroll in the plan, until fall of the following school year.
