There seems to be some issues with ID cards being issued
this year. If you do not receive your ID
card by next week (10/29/13) please email my office and include your current
address. Also for some reason students
who signed up for Plan B and have already got your ID cards, the carrier mistakenly
sent a list to printer to order you a new ID cards for Plan A. So if this happens to any of you on Plan B please
disregard the Plan A cards, you are enrolled in the correct plan and your tuition
account was charged for Plan B if that was the plan you actively selected.
Again I apologize for any convenience this may cause you and
I am working with the companies to see what went wrong.
All degree seeking students enrolled in five or more hours are required to have insurance. As a result, all full-time students taking five or more credit hours are automatically billed for the Student Health Insurance Plan A. If you have a comparable insurance, you may qualify to waive the Student Health Insurance Plan please see the section on waving and SHI. If you are a degree seeking student taking less the 4.9 credit hours and need the student insurance you must actively enroll in the plan.
As many of you are aware we have had a challenging year this
year trying to get the new plan set up. I apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused you, and I am
here to help expedite any problems. If
you are having problems filling prescriptions or need you eligibility on the
plan please contact my office by email firstname.lastname@example.org. I can then have the AmeriBen manually update
the system so you can get the services you need. As soon as I hear the issues have been
resolved I will post that info. As for
the reasons it was a combination of the new plan and Health Care Reform, which
does not only affect benefits, but also how the information has to be
transmitted to even little details like the font used in brochures and member
If you did pay for anything out of pocket you may submit
those for reimbursement. You will find
the forms located under form link on this site.

refunded if the withdrawal occurs during the first 31 days. Students who
withdraw will not be entitled to any benefits during the days described and no
claims received will be honored. No other
refunds will be issued except for
entry into the armed forces or withdrawal from school within the first 31 days
of the semester in which the student enrolled.
