Welcome to the Gordon State College student health insurance plan (SHIP). Here you have the option of enrolling or waiving out of the plan offered by UnitedHealthcare StudentResources.

Open Enrollment will close on June 20, 2014

Students in these categories who are not covered by a policy held by a parent, spouse, company or organization on the approved waiver list or if the policy does not meet the minimum standards that have been established by United Healthcare Student Resources must purchase the USG SHIP policy.
  • All undergraduate, graduate and ESL international students holding F1 visas.
  • All undergraduate and graduate students enrolled in programs that require proof of health insurance.(i.e Associates of Nursing or Bachelors of Nursing)

Students who fall into one of these categories and are already covered by an insurance policy (i.e. through parent plans, family plans or employer-sponsored plans) can easily opt out of the plan by applying for a waiver through a secure on-line process. Once the information has been verified, all charges will be removed from your student account. Please apply for waivers promptly each term to prevent paying for insurance premiums out-of-pocket. Students listed in the above categories who fail to submit creditable health insurance information will automatically be enrolled in and billed for the system wide student health insuranve plan.

Gordon State College, Business Office, 419 College Drive, Barnsville, GA 30204

No waivers for summer 2014 will be processed after June 20, 2014. Please be aware that students must opt out of the plan by applying for a waiver through the on- line process each semester.



What’s Next?  

Once you have submitted your waiver application it will be reviewed. The review process could take up to 10 business days. During the review process you could be asked to submit to your Student Health Insurance Representative proof of your insurance. This could be, but is not limited to, insurance identification card, certificate of insurance, a letter from your insurance company, or your entire insurance policy that outlines your coverage.
(All documentation must be in English.) You will be notified at the email address you provided in your waiver application of your approved or denied waiver.

If denied you may appeal this decision by contacting your institution's Student Health Insurance Representative. They will also require you to submit documentation regarding your personal insurance policy. Again, this documentation could be, but is not limited to, your insurance card, a certificate of insurance, a letter from your insurance company, or your entire insurance policy that outlines your coverage. (All documentation must be in English.)
