Enrollment in the United HealthCare Student Plan
If a student’s insurance is not valid in Michigan, or if a student does not have health insurance, enrollment in the United HealthCare Student Plan is required. You are eligible for this Student Plan if you are a:
- Current student: taking 6 or more credit hours at Calvin
- Calvin graduate: if you graduate in May, you are still covered until August 15 of the policy year
- Spouse/dependent: coverage may be purchased for spouses and dependent child(ren) under age 19
- Student on parents’ plan: families may decide to supplement a current policy with the United HealthCare Student Plan. In this case, the United HealthCare Student Plan will be the secondary plan when used off-campus. After the primary plan has paid on a claim, submit any excess amount (for covered accident or illness) to StudentResources

Once enrolled, the insurance premium will be billed to the student’s miscellaneous account, and payment can be made through financial services.
Coverage cannot be canceled after November 15th for the Fall or Annual plan or after March 15 for the Spring plan. (International Students cannot waive out of the plan after August 15). No waivers will be accepted after those dates and no refunds will be given. Students who miss the annual or spring open enrollment dates will have an opportunity to join the plan; however, no pro-rated premium is available.
