If you already have another health insurance plan that provides comprehensive coverage in the Lehigh area for inpatient and outpatient services in both emergency and non-emergency situations, you may opt out of the Lehigh University Student Health Insurance Plan by submitting this waiver form by the deadline.
All Lehigh International Students on an F-1 or J-1 Visa are not permitted to drop coverage by submitting a waiver form unless you have parents or a spouse/domestic partner living and/or working in the U.S. and are covered under a family plan that's ACA-compliant, you are sponsored to study at Lehigh by your home country or U.S. government that provides you with an insurance plan, or you have dependents at Lehigh and have a private family insurance plan that's ACA-compliant. International students should contact Lehigh’s Office of International Students & Scholars (610) 758-4859 to verify if you qualify for a waiver.
If you do not complete a waiver or enrollment form by the deadline, you will be enrolled in the Lehigh plan and will remain responsible for the associated premium of $2,057 on your student bill.
If the insurance waiver is completed by July 1st the charge and waiver will appear on the July bill.
Once your waiver is completed, please allow 2-3 business days to see the credit posted to your Bursar Account.
Waivers that occur after July 31st, or more than 10 days after becoming eligible, may be subject to a late processing fee of $25.
