Health insurance is a requirement of 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 automatically charged for the NYU sponsored Comprehensive Insurance Plan.You will remain enrolled in that plan unless you complete the waiver process before the semester deadline.
Students have an option to:
University waiver criteria include:
|Semester ||Insurance Effective Dates |
|Fall ||August 21st through August 20th of the following year |
|Spring ||January 9th through |
|Summer ||May 14th through |
The following types of insurance plans will not be acceptable for waiving the NYU plans:
Travel policies with limited benefits and exclusions of coverage important for a college population.
Insurance plans that always require students to pay for treatment out-of-pocket and then be reimbursed.
To avoid being obligated to pay for two health insurance plans, please do not purchase another health insurance plan before it is approved. Your waiver will not be processed until the Student Health Insurance Department confirms that your insurance plan meets the University’s requirements.
