Principia College (Principia) requires that all students have health insurance coverage accepted in the state of Illinois, and therefore, requires students to annually confirm coverage under their existing plan or, if they do not have any existing insurance, obtain such coverage.
For students who do not have health insurance or have not obtained it elsewhere, Principia has contracted with Wellfleet Insurance Company to be the insurance provider and University Health Plans, Inc. (UHP) to administer the plan. The Plan offers a Preferred Provider Organization (PPO) through Cigna and has been designed for Principia students, offering comprehensive health insurance coverage. Details about the Student Health Insurance Plan can be found by selecting “Benefit Information” in the navigation menu on the left-hand side of this page.
Students will automatically be enrolled in and billed for the Principia Student Health Insurance Plan unless a waiver form is submitted showing acceptable coverage. Students must provide a copy of the front and back of their insurance ID cards.
The premium for spring coverage effective January 15, 2021 through August 9, 2021:
|Premium||Admin Fee*||Total Cost|
All students must submit their online spring waiver by December 22, 2020 in order to ensure their bill accurately reflects their choice. If they do not have acceptable health coverage or do not complete the waiver by the deadline, they will be required to purchase the Principia Student Health Insurance Plan and will be automatically enrolled and charged on their Principia student account.
If you are currently insured, you may waive enrollment. However, please note the following:
All students need to waive or confirm enrollment in the Student Health Insurance Plan. To waive or enroll, click on the appropriate link, either “Waiver Form” or “Enrollment Form,” in the navigation menu. Complete all required information and click submit. The deadline to waive or enroll for spring coverage is December 22, 2020. If a waiver form is not successfully submitted, then the student will be automatically enrolled in the Student Health Insurance Plan after the deadline date.
