Undergraduate and graduate students are reminded the University provides easy access to a full line of high-quality healthcare services conveniently located on UToledo campuses, in addition to a healthcare plan that covers all or part of those services.

Spring semester open enrollment for the Student Health Plan, administered by Payer Fusion, runs until 5 p.m. Friday, Jan. 31. Students not covered by their parent’s or employer’s insurance, or those who do not have coverage through the open marketplace, should visit the Student Health Plan website.

Student reminders:

• If you waived healthcare coverage through the Student Health Plan for fall semester but would like this coverage for spring semester, you may enroll by Jan. 31.

• If you had coverage through the Student Health Plan for fall and also want coverage for spring, you must re-enroll because fall semester coverage ended Dec. 31.

• If you are a student mandated to have healthcare coverage (student-athletes, international students with J-1 visas, and those enrolled in health-related programs) and did not waive coverage for fall semester: You automatically will be enrolled in the Student Health Plan and assessed the fee. However, you may waive this coverage by providing documentation of comparable coverage; your student account will then be credited this fee. If you do not waive this coverage by Jan. 31, you are ineligible for reimbursement. Note: Mandated students who waived coverage for fall do not need to take any additional action.

“We’re proud to offer students the Student Health Plan, which features a zero deductible when using our student health centers, doctors and mental health counseling,” said LeAnna Glick, student insurance program administrator. “Students also can fill generic prescriptions at our on-campus pharmacies for only a $5 co-pay.”

Additionally, dental and vision coverage are available through the University, as well as coverage for a student’s spouse and/or children.

To enroll in the Student Health Plan for spring (or waive mandated coverage if you did not already waive it for fall), 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 Jan. 31.

Students with questions or who need help to enroll may contact studenthealthinsurance@utoledo.edu or 419.530.3474.
