All full time matriculated students enrolled at St. Lawrence University are required to enroll in the St. Lawrence Student Health Insurance Plan (SHIP) OR provide proof of alternative insurance coverage through a comparable plan. Students are automatically enrolled in SHIP and must complete an online waiver form providing proof of their alternative coverage in order not to be billed the annual premium. The plan administrator for SHIP during the calendar year 2014-2015 will be Consolidated Health Plans (CHP) and the annual premium for all students will be $1,360.
The SHIP plan for 2014-2015 will be fully compliant with the Affordable Care Act and provide coverage for the period 8/10/14 - 8/9/15.
Once your online waiver has been accepted your coverage will be reviewed to ensure it meets the student health insurance requirement at St. Lawrence University. You will be notified once this takes place. If your insurance plan is verified and meets the school insurance requirement, you will receive confirmation that your waiver has passed. If your insurance plan cannot be verified or does not meet the school insurance requirement, you will be notified and asked to supply additional documentation. The verification process takes approximately 2 weeks to complete.
