To waive the Student Health Insurance Plan and report your own insurance:
Olin College does not allow certain students to waive off the QSHIP plan. If the student falls under one of the following categories they are ineligible for waiver and will be automatically enrolled:
The Olin College Student Health Insurance 2020-2021 policy period begins on August 15, 2020 and runs through August 14, 2021. Students who have coverage under another qualified health insurance coverage will be given the opportunity to waive coverage in the Olin College Student Health Insurance Plan. The waiver stipulates that personal coverage will be maintained during the 2020-2021 policy period, August 15, 2020 through August 14, 2021.
Students attending for fall 2020 who have not waived coverage by July 17, 2020 will see the full premium for the student health insurance plan ($2,993) charged to their student account. If a waiver is received after July 17, 2020 and before August 31, 2020, the health insurance charge will be reversed. If a waiver is not on file by the deadline, August 31, 2020, the student will remain responsible for payment of the full premium.
