If you are considering waiving Salve’s Student Health Insurance Plan, please note that some insurance plans are restrictive and may leave students essentially uninsured while away at school. This could result in you incurring substantial out-of-pocket costs for medical care. In evaluating your plan, you must verify the following.

  • My plan provides adequate coverage that is accessible in the Newport area for:
    • Lab tests and x-rays
    • Prescription drugs
    • Hospitalization (including room & board, physicians’ fees and surgical expenses)
    • Outpatient hospital services
    • Mental health care
    • Emergency room care
    • Intercollegiate sports injuries (for those participating)
  • My plan will cover me through August 14, 2024
  • My plan does not have a high deductible that needs to be met before I am allowed to access coverage.

Waiver Process: For students, participation in the Salve Regina University Health Insurance Plan is mandatory unless you are enrolled in another comparable health insurance plan. If you choose to waive, you will need to provide proof of comparable coverage by submitting the Spring semester on-line waiver form by February 1, 2024. A credit in the amount of the Health Insurance Fee will be posted to your student account when we receive the Waiver Form.
