Eligibility

All undergraduate and graduate international students, actively taking classes on campus, are eligible to enroll.

  1. Eligible students who enroll may insure their dependents as well. Eligible dependents are the student’s legal spouse/domestic partner and dependent children under 26 years of age. The student must be enrolled in order to access an enrollment opportunity for dependents
  2. Students eligible for this insurance plan must be actively attending class in person. Students that are primarily enrolled in online courses, home study programs, or correspondence courses do not fulfill the eligibility requirements
  3. This list is not exhaustive; each applicant must review the insurance policy information and base eligibility determinations upon that review. If a student is found to be ineligible for the policy, United Healthcare will remove the student from the policy. If you have questions if you are eligible or not, please contact Katie Fitzsimmons at the NDUS Office
  4. If you have questions about the plan, please refer to your Campus Contact

Enrollment


Domestic Students

The NDUS UHCSR Plan does not offer coverage to domestic students. NDUS encourages students to seek health care coverage if they do not have insurance. If you are in need of assistance in finding health insurance, please visit healthcare.gov.

 

International Students
International students are automatically enrolled by semester in the student health insurance plan by their institution. A student may opt-in to NDUS health insurance coverage prior to automatic enrollment to expedite confirmation of coverage. The premium cost is billed to the international student’s campus connection account. If an international student wants to waive this health insurance coverage, comparable coverage must be in place and verified through the waiver process. Click here to learn more.

 

Waiver application deadlines for the 2022/2023 academic year are as follows:

Fall term: August 31, 2022

Spring/Summer term: January 19, 2023

Summer term: May 9, 2023
