How does it work?
ALL STUDENTS at the Anschutz Medical campus​ taking 1 or more credit hours will automatically be enrolled on our Plan A coverage (low deductible plan, see details below). You may change your enrollment to Plan B (high deductible plan) by contacting the student insurance office. The insurance premium will be added to your tuition. Once your insurance is active you will receive an ID card as well as access to your account at where you will be able to view benefits, download your ID card, or find a provider.
What if I have coverage through an outside insurance company?​​
You can waive out of the student insurance plan by filling out an insurance waiver. Your personal insurance must meet all the requirements stated under “waiving health insurance” in order to be approved. Waivers have to be submitted each year before the stated deadlines.
