Welcome Spring 2016
New York University values the health of its students and therefore requires that students in degree-granting programs and all F-1/J-1 international students maintain health insurance coverage. Therefore, most students are enrolled automatically in the Basic or Comprehensive Plan of the NYU-sponsored Student Health Insurance Program as part of the course registration process. Please review the Eligibility and Automatic Enrollment Guide for more information about eligibility and automatic enrollment. If you are eligible for the student plan, you must review your insurance options and either:
- maintain enrollment in the plan in which you were enrolled automatically, or change enrollment to a different student plan;
- enroll in a student plan, if you are eligible but were not automatically enrolled; or
- waive all NYU plans if you have other health insurance coverage which meets the University requirements.
Although you may be enrolled automatically in the plan of your choice, we strongly urge you to complete the online enrollment process. Confirming your plan choice as early as possible will ensure continual coverage throughout the academic year, even if you reduce your credit load.
Note: Enrollment/Waivers from previous academic years are not rolled forward or renewed.
Please take a few minutes to consider your selection for insurance coverage. You must make your decision, no later than the February 10th deadline. You may want to first review the 2015-2016 Student Health Insurance Guide.
