Insurance Cost Per Term

The student health insurance plan for the 2014-15 academic year is $694 for each eligible term (i.e. Fall, Winter, and a Spring/Summer* combination). The annual amount for 12 months of coverage is $2,082. The cost for Summer term only (students who do not take Spring classes) is $513. This amount will automatically be applied to the student's account unless they waive out by the Waiver deadline. Students cand find more information on the waiver process on the Insurance Waiver webpage.

If a student waives out, and then loses coverage, they may request to re-enroll in the PSU Student Health Insurance Plan, but must do so within 30 days of loss of coverage. If the student does not notify the SHAC Insurance Team within 30 days of losing their coverage, they must wait until the next term to enroll and find a short-term health insurance plan. Insurance coverage is not backdated and the premium is not prorated.
