Sept. 30 Deadline for Enrolling, Waiving Student Health Plan Coverage

UToledo strives to provide undergraduate and graduate students with easy access to a full line of high-quality healthcare services that are conveniently located on campus, in addition to a healthcare plan that covers those services.

The University recommends all students maintain healthcare coverage by:

• Remaining on their employer’s or parent’s health insurance plan;

• Choosing coverage offered by UToledo that is administered through Payer Fusion; or

• Selecting a plan through the open marketplace at healthcare.gov.

Open enrollment for fall semester runs through Monday, Sept. 30. The deadline to waive for mandated students is also Sept 30.

“There are many benefits to the Student Health Plan, including a zero-deductible for using UToledo doctors, including specialists and mental health professionals,” said LeAnna Glick, student insurance program administrator. “Students covered by this plan also can get their generic prescriptions filled at our on-campus outpatient pharmacies for a co-pay of only $5.”

Additionally, UToledo students can enroll for dental and vision coverage, as well as coverage for their spouse and/or dependents.

“There are certain students who are mandated to have healthcare coverage, including student-athletes; international students holding J-1 visas; and students in health-related programs, such as medicine, nursing and pharmacy students, and those in allied healthcare programs,” Glick noted.

They’re automatically enrolled in the Student Health Plan, but may waive it by providing proof of coverage by another plan no later than Monday, Sept. 30, so their student account isn’t charged for this coverage, she added.

Students choosing to enroll in the Student Health Plan (or waive coverage if they are a mandated student) should log in to the myUT portal and select the Health Plan – Enroll or Waive link in the Toolkit, under My Registration Steps, and complete the necessary steps by the Sept. 30 deadline.
