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

Open Enrollment for Fall Semester begins on July 6, 2015 and ends September 18, 2015  


Students in the categories below 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 must purchase the USG SHIP policy:
  • All graduate students receiving a Full Tuition Waiver as part of their graduate assistantship
  • All undergraduate, graduate and ESL international students holding F or J visas
  • All undergraduate and graduate students enrolled in programs that require proof of health insurance
  • All graduate students receiving fellowships that fully fund their tuition
  • International Scholars

    Students who fall into one of these categories and are already covered by an insurance policy (i.e. through parent plan, family plan or employer-sponsored plan) can easily opt out of the plan through a secure on-line process. Once the information has been verified, all charges will be removed from your student account. 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 insurance plan.

    No waivers for Fall Semester 2015 will be processed after September 18, 2015. Please be aware that students must opt out of the plan by applying for a waiver through the on-line process each semester.  



    Failure to submit a waiver by the close date of September 18, 2015 will result in automatic enrollment into the UHC health insurance plan and the insurance charge will be posted to your student account.

    Please be aware that students must opt out of the plan by applying for a waiver through the on-line process each semester. Please read Ship Checklist before proceeding to the

    What’s Next?  

    Once you have submitted your waiver application it will be reviewed. The review process could take up to 4 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.)
