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 11, 2016 and ends August 30, 2016
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 2016 will be processed after August 30, 2016. Please be aware that students must opt out of the plan by applying for a waiver through the on-line process each semester.
