Mandatory Student Health Insurance / Hard Waiver Process
All eligible students enrolled in the UNC System Colleges and Universities, including UNC-Chapel Hill, are required to have health insurance coverage. The UNC System endorses a cost-effective Student Health Insurance Plan that covers most health care expenses not included in the Campus Health Fee. This plan is administered by Blue Cross / Blue Shield of North Carolina called Student Blue. You may wish to view a brief presentation detailing the plan and cost savings at www.bcbsnc.com/unc.
Each semester the Student Health Insurance (insurance premium) is added to all eligible students’ University accounts. Eligible students must enroll to activate their insurance or complete the online waiver process with their own creditable insurance coverage before the deadline each semester. Once the waiver is verified and approved, the premium will be credited to the student’s account.
SEMESTER DEADLINES for WAIVE and ENROLL:
FALL/SEPTEMBER 10 SPRING/JANUARY 30
A completed, verified and approved WAIVER is required each semester if you do not wish to participate in the UNC System Student Health Insurance Plan.
To participate in the UNC System Student Health Insurance Plan, eligible students should ENROLL online at the Student Blue website for UNC-Chapel Hill each semester before August 1 or January 1 to activate the policy. The policy must be active if you need to see a doctor, fill a prescription or if you have an accident.
