Mandatory Students- Waiver Process for Summer Semester 2014

Welcome to the Georgia State University student health insurance plan (SHIP) for students classified for Mandatory student health insurance. Mandatory students are the following:
  • All graduate students awarded a Full Tuition Waiver as part of their graduate assistantship
  • All undergraduate, graduate and English as a Second Language (ESL) international students holding F1 and J1 visas
  • All graduate students receiving fellowships fully funding their tuition

    Note: A few programs (e.g. Physical Therapy) require students to have health insurance, but are not classified in the “Mandatory” group as defined above. Non-mandatory students may purchase the student health insurance policy at www.uhcsr.com/gsu as part of the voluntary enrollment process with United Healthcare and pay directly to UHCSR.

    Students in the Mandatory group who are currently covered by comparable health insurance on another policy may apply for a waiver by completing the secure on-line process indicated on this website. Once the submitted insurance information has been approved, a process will be run in Student Accounts to apply a credit to your GoSolar account for the insurance charge for the semester.

    Spring Semester waiver dates: Waiver period opens: April 4, 2014 and will close on July 1, 2014.

    Failure to submit a waiver by the close date of July 1, 2014 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.



    If you need a health insurance card quickly, please complete the enrollment card and print a card now. Otherwise you will not receive a card until after the wavier period has closed. Enrollment Form


    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.)
