Student Insurance Options
All registered students are required to show proof of health insurance. Beginning with the fall quarter of each academic year, the student insurance premium will be added to the invoice. Current domestic students can waive this premium by completing the insurance waiver form found in the Banner system. International students are required to keep the insurance coverage provided by Rose-Hulman, even if they have other insurance in place. Parents should consult the parent’s pages for forms and answers to questions. This waiver must be completed at the beginning of each academic year. Students participating in the COOP or Studies Abroad programs must also show proof of insurance.

Rose-Hulman Accident/Sickness Insurance is automatically charged to all students at the start of each school year. In order to waive the student insurance charge, the student must be registered as a domestic student. International students, regardless of registration status, are not permitted to waive the Rose-Hulman student insurance fee. Effective in the 2014-2015 policy plan year, domestic and international students will be billed the same annual/quarterly fee for student insurance and have the same policy coverage’s and deductibles. The 2014-2015 plan will also include a prescription card (Rx). Additional details can be found on the carrier’s website www.studentplanscenter.com
If the domestic student has other health or accident/sickness insurance and does not need the Rose-Hulman coverage, an electronic waiver must be completed by the student or parent each school year. Instructions on how to waive coverage can be obtained by reviewing “How to Waive Student Insurance.”
Insurance coverage can be added or deleted (waived) at the start of any quarter. Any waivers or additions submitted after the start of a quarter will be applied to the following quarter. Insurance charges cannot be pro-rated, backdated or removed from the student’s account after the start of the quarter.
The Rose-Hulman Accident/Sickness policy is an excess policy that will pay eligible expenses after any other collectable insurance has been exhausted. The bills incurred by the student must first be submitted to the family’s insurance policy for reimbursement. See additional information below under “Claim Procedures”
Insurance cards along with an insurance packet are sent to students by campus mail in late September or early October each year. As long as the student has been billed for student insurance coverage in spring quarter, they will have coverage in place through the summer months. Policy effective dates will vary each school year so please review the student insurance brochure for policy dates or contact the manager of Insurance and Risk Management at x8457 or by email.
