All full-time Traditional Undergraduate students enrolled for a minimum of twelve (12) credit hours will automatically be enrolled in the Jacksonville University Student Medical Insurance Plan and the premium for coverage is added to the tuition billing upon registration.  This plan is also automatically added for Orthodontics students, excluding those participating in the Clinical Research in Orthodontic Fellowship Program. Coverage can be waived if evidence of other comparable coverage is presented prior to the waiver deadline.

The University student health insurance policy is compliant with Federal Health Care Reform law (section 1302b of the PPACA).

 

IMPORTANT INFORMATION REGARDING STUDENT HEALTH INSURANCE FOR
THE 2014-2015 ACADEMIC YEAR

 

DUE TO REQUIREMENTS OF THE PATIENT PROTECTION AND AFFORDABLE CARE ACT (PPACA), INSURANCE RATES ARE EXPECTED TO INCREASE EFFECTIVE JANUARY 1, 2015.  NEW RATES WILL BE ANNOUNCED IN OCTOBER, 2014.  Full-time Traditional Undergraduate students enrolled in the Student Health Insurance plan in the Fall 2014 term will automatically be billed $548.75 for the Fall term only (8/1/14 through 12/31/14).  Insurance is still provided for the entire academic year.  Therefore, in January 2015, new and  continuing full-time Traditional Undergraduate students in Spring 2015 will automatically be billed at the new, increased rate, prorated for the remainder of the academic year (Spring 2015 and Summer 2015, 1/1/15 through 7/31/15).  New, incoming full-time Traditional Undergraduate students in the Summer 2015 term will be billed at the new rate, prorated for the Summer term only.  For all students participating in the Student Health Insurance plan thereafter, coverage will automatically renew for the following academic year (2015-2016) unless a valid waiver has been received, and the entire amount for that year will be billed in the Fall 2015 term at the rate in effect at that time.
 

General Rules for Enrollment
Students may enroll after the deadline only if there has been a significant life change (i.e. loss of prior coverage) and should contact the Jacksonville University Student Health Insurance Administrator at (904) 256-7080 or health@ju.edu.  A written request must be submitted to the Controller’s Office with documentation as to why they no longer are insured, along with proof of dropped coverage from the prior carrier. The rate will be pro-rated based on the month the student enrolls.
