Student Health Insurance Waiver Process

Deciding if you need to waive out of the PSU Student Health Insurance

IF YOU HAVE INSURANCE

If you have health insurance that is comparable* to the PSU Student Health Insurance Plan offered through a different insurance company (i.e through an employer, spouse, parent/guardian, scholarship, etc.; international students have different waiver requirements**), and DO NOT want to take part in the PSU Plan, you must complete the online waiver process by the Waiver Deadline or your student account will be charged.

If you DO NOT complete the online waiver process by the Waiver Deadline, you will automatically be enrolled in the PSU Student Health Insurance Plan each term you are eligible, (Fall, Winter, Spring/Summer combination), and your student account will be charged. 

IF YOU DO NOT HAVE INSURANCE

If you do not have health insurance no action is required. You will be automatically enrolled in the PSU Student Health Insurance Plan each term you are eligible, (Fall, Winter, Spring/Summer combination), and your student account will be charged.
