Student Health Plan

For Domestic Students (U.S. Citizen and Permanent Resident)

Insurance Requirements

Willamette University requires that all degree seeking half time or more domestic students carry medical insurance coverage comparable to that offered through the school's comprehensive Student Health Insurance Plan. You will automatically be enrolled in the PacificSource Health Plan Policy and charged through our student accounts department at the beginning of the Fall and Spring semester.

Students with other medical insurance that meets the criteria of comparable coverage may submit an online waiver request each academic year in the Fall. The deadline to submit that online waiver for the 2018-2019 academic year is September 10, 2018.

There will be an opportunity for NEW incoming Spring 2019 students or returning students who were NOT enrolled in Fall 2018 semester classes to waive from the Willamette Student Health Insurance Plan between December 17, 2018 and February 4, 2019. Information about Spring Semester waivers will be posted by the December 17, 2018 waiver start date. 

*Enrollment/waivers for eligible students meeting the corresponding credit hours is/are annual and will apply for the entire 2018-2019 policy year. Students who waive/enroll Fall 2018 semester are choosing to waive/enroll for both Fall and Spring Semester (if eligible both Fall and Spring semester based on credit requirements), the opportunity to waive/enroll will NOT be provided again in Spring 2019 semester; Spring open enrollment and waiver period is only applicable to new incoming students or students NOT enrolled in classes Fall 2018 semester. Late enrollment or waiver requests will not be accepted, no exceptions. 

Note: Students who are graduating, drop below half time, or not continuing their course studies paying tuition to Willamette Spring 2019 semester will no longer be eligible for the Willamette student insurance plan spring semester. Coverage will terminate January 5, 2019 for students not continuing or dropping below half time.
