Health insurance is required by the University and is a necessity in the United States because of the very high cost of healthcare. When you are registered for classes, you will be charged automatically for the NYU-sponsored Comprehensive Plan. You will remain enrolled in that plan unless you complete the online enrollment/waiver process at www.nyu.edu/health/insurance before the semester deadline.
Students have an option to:
- Waive the NYU-sponsored plans if you maintain other insurance coverage that meets the University’s criteria described below, or
- Downgrade your coverage to the Basic Plan. (Students may only opt to downgrade coverage when first registering for the academic year.)
