Eligibility and Mandatory Coverage

Student Health Insurance 2018 - 2019 Plan Year for Most Full-time Undergraduate and Graduate Students

Most students registered in resident thesis research or registered for nine or more academic and billable credit hours in a Georgetown University degree program (eight or more credit hours if a law or graduate student) are eligible and required to enroll in the most comprehensive student injury and sickness plan offered by Georgetown University, unless proof of other coverage that meets the University's requirements and remains in effect for the entire Academic Year is approved by Student Health Insurance.  Home study courses do not fulfill the eligibility requirements.

Eligible students are charged once during the academic year for the Premier Plan.  The charge is posted to the students' tuition bill upon registering for the required course credit hours and degree.  Students with other required coverage, may elect to decline the Premier Plan coverage and receive a credit on their student account by submitting the Student Health Insurance Acceptance or Waiver Form that demonstrates the other coverage meets the minimum requirements.

Prorated refunds are not granted.  If you expect to enroll in other coverage in mid-year, consider waiving the Premier Plan during Open Enrollment by purchasing other coverage to bridge any gap in coverage.

Refer to the Premier Plan Certificate of Coverage and the links to the left for eligibility and enrollment details including eligibility information regarding students who:

  • Are eligible to enroll late due to being involuntarily dropped from their other coverage due to age or job status within the last 31 days;
  • Are eligible to enroll late due to terminating their annual coverage during their Open Enrollment Period within the last 31 days;
  • Are eligible to enroll a dependent late due to a qualifying event within the last 31 days; 
  • Were insured in the Premier Plan for at least the last six months of the previous Plan Year and are, now, on a Medical Leave of Absence; or
  • Were insured in the Premier Plan for at least the last six months of the previous Plan Year and must reduce their credit hours below the eligible credit hours due to medical reasons.
