NEW enrollment procedures.
F and J Rutgers Sponsored Visa Students will enroll by completing an enrollment form at www.universityhealthplans.com. The premium is added to your term bill each semester upon enrollment into your courses. To add dependents/spouse, or for a life status change, you must visit globalservices.rutgers.edu.
If you have other coverage and wish to waive, you must visit globalservices.rutgers.edu. Failure to waive before the deadline will result in a nonrefundable charge, and students will be responsible for the premium on their term bill.
NOTE: The Student Health Insurance Plan (SHIP) premium is a separate charge from the Health Services Fee. The Health Services Fee cannot be waived. The SHIP is medical health insurance with nationwide coverage.
Less than full-appointment TAs/GAs are eligible under this plan as determined by University Human Resources (UHR). Once you are on payroll, call UHR at 848-932-3990 to confirm your employment status and ensure enrollment in the Partial-Appointment TA/GA Health Insurance plan with United Healthcare Student Resources. No waiver action is required; you will be automatically enrolled by UHR. Insured persons may enroll their eligible dependents with UHR.
NOTE: You will get an email from United Healthcare Student Resources (www.uhcsr.com) within 5–7 business days after UHCSR has received your enrollment with instructions to print a card. Please call United Healthcare Student Resources directly at 800-505-4160 if you need assistance in this process.
Insured persons may enroll their eligible dependents at www.universityhealthplans.com and the premium is paid by the insured directly to University Health Plans.
The coverage period for the less than full-appointment TAs/GAs covers a date range between 09/01/17–08/31/18, depending on your appointment.
Full-appointment TAs/GAs are eligible for the State Health Benefits Plan (SHBP). You must enroll with University Human Resources (UHR). Visit uhr.rutgers.edu/teaching-assistants-graduate-assistants for more information. You must complete the SHBP forms and submit the forms to UHR. Once you have submitted your forms to UHR and they input your information into their health insurance program then we can remove the Student Health Insurance Premium from your account. You are not required to complete the SHIP waiver form. The Student Health Insurance Office will remove the SHIP premium once you are in the system showing you have submitted your SHBP paperwork to UHR.
Upon registration at Rutgers University, The Program in American Language Studies (PALS) Department submits a list to the Student Health Insurance Office for enrollment in the Student Health Insurance Plan. Any questions regarding your enrollment please contact your PALS department.
