Student Health Insurance

All FAMU students are required to have health insurance per University Regulation 2.033.  This regulation applies to students that are enrolled at least half-time (9 hours undergraduate or 6 hours graduate) in a degree-seeking program. Students that are strictly online, transient, non-degree seeking, dual enrolled high school students, certificate students and less than part-time are exempt from this requirement.

Students are required to provide proof of insurance coverage via an online waiver portal or purchase the university-sponsored student health insurance plan. Students that fail to provide documentation of insurance coverage and students whose opt-out waivers are denied will be enrolled in the university-sponsored plan.  Charges for the plan will be placed on the student account and the student will be responsible for payment. The deadline for waivers is at the end of the drop/add, Friday, January 11, 2019.

 

Important Note: Insurance information provided on the FAMU Health History and Immunization Form, bringing a copy of your insurance card to the clinic or providing proof of insurance to Athletics or to an academic department WILL NOT satisfy this requirement. This process is completely online and managed by a third party.

 

If you already have health insurance coverage through a parent/guardian, spouse, employer or other means.  You need to provide proof of coverage and enter this information via the online waiver portal by the deadline (see table above). Please, have your current health insurance card available to help you complete the ONLINE waiver form. Opt-out of the insurance using the following link:
