Providence College

2019-2020 Policy Year

Providence College is pleased to announce that for the 2019-2020 academic year we have teamed up with Wellfleet Student to provide health insurance coverage for our students and University Health Plans (UHP) to administer the plan. University Health Plans is available to manage the waiver and enrollment process and answer general questions about the insurance plan. To speak with a representative, please call (800) 437-6448 or send an email to

All full-time Providence College students are automatically enrolled in and billed for the Student Health Insurance Plan unless a waiver is submitted as outlined below. Details about the Student Health Insurance Plan can be found by selecting “Benefit Information” in the left navigation menu. The spring premium for coverage effective January 1, 2020 through August 31, 2020 is $1,039.  

If you are currently insured you may waive enrollment. However, please note the following:

  • Not all plans provide comprehensive coverage in Rhode Island such as out-of-state Medicaid plans, and certain HMOs and managed care plans. Be sure to check with your insurance company before waiving.
  • Medicaid Plans provided by a state other than Rhode Island do not provide comprehensive coverage in Rhode Island. It is essential all students have access to non-emergent care including mental health professionals and specialists within the Providence College campus area.
  • If your comparable plan will end before 8/31/20, while you are in school, you must either enroll in the Student Health Insurance Plan within 31 days of your other plan’s end date, or find comparable coverage elsewhere. You must ALWAYS be sufficiently insured while registered for at least 9 credits.
  • International students are automatically enrolled in the Student Health Plan and do not have access to the online enrollment and waiver forms.
