STUDENT HEALTH INSURANCE PLAN

2017-2018 Policy Year

University of Bridgeport is pleased to announce that for the 2017-2018 academic year Consolidated Health Plans continues to be the insurance provider for our students and we have teamed up with University Health Plans, Inc. (UHP) to administer the plan.

University of Bridgeport requires all full-time undergraduate students, international students, physician assistant students and all students living in campus housing to be covered by a health insurance plan. All full-time undergraduate, international, physician assistant students and residential students are automatically enrolled in and billed for the University of Bridgeport Student Health Insurance Plan. 

The Plan offers a Preferred Provider Organization (PPO) and has been designed for University of Bridgeport students and their dependents, offering comprehensive health insurance coverage with an emphasis on wellness including annual physicals, women’s wellness, and immunizations.

International Student Process

International students are automatically enrolled in the Student Health Insurance Plan and do not have access to the online waiver form. International students that have a US health insurance plan that is comparable to the University of Bridgeport Student Health Insurance Plan should contact University Health Plans at 800-437-6448 or info@univhealthplans.com.

Waiving Coverage

The deadline to waive the annual Student Health Insurance Plan is September 15th, 2017. If a waiver form is not submitted, then the student will be automatically enrolled in and billed for the Student Health Insurance Plan. Students who waive coverage in the fall do not have to waive again until the next academic year 

Only newly enrolled Spring or Summer students will be enrolled in the spring or summer. The deadline for newly enrolled Spring students to waive is February 15, 2018. The deadline for NEW Summer students to waive is the first day of class

If a waiver form is not submitted by the deadline, then the student will be automatically enrolled in and billed for the Student Health Insurance Plan.

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

  • Not all plans provide comprehensive coverage in Connecticut such as out-of-state Medicaid plans, and certain HMOs and managed care plans. Be sure to check with your insurance company before waiving.
  • If your comparable plan will end before July 31, 2018, 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.
