Student Health Insurance


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). 



United Healthcare has been selected as Jacksonville University’s 2016-2017 Student Health Insurance provider.  The premium rates are provided below.  The 2016-2017 Plan brochure will be published as soon as it becomes available. 


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  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.   


Special note for International Students
Waivers will only be accepted if your insurance coverage is based in the United States and the policy must be printed in English.

Special note for Active Duty Military Students
If you are non-NROTC Active Duty you will need to provide a completed waiver form and a letter from your CO, which states that you have full health and accident coverage.

Special note for Military Dependent Students
If you have Tricare Prime, a copy of your insurance card is still a requirement. If you do not have your card, please visit to access your card online.
