Students can waive the University's health plan from their fee bill.

UConn automatically enrolls students in the University health plan. However, if you have alternative coverage, you can waive the University plan. If you fail to complete the waiver, it is assumed that you accept coverage offered under the University-sponsored health insurance plan, and the charge for that coverage will remain on your fee bill.

  • If you wish to opt out of the University plan, you must complete the Health Insurance waiver.
  • Fall waivers must be submitted prior to September 15th. Spring waivers must be submitted prior to February 5th.
