Health Insurance Requirement

Washington University has a health insurance requirement for all full-time, degree-seeking students. Under this requirement, students must either purchase the Washington University Student Health Insurance Plan or prove they have adequate coverage through another plan. If a student does not demonstrate that they have adequate coverage from another plan, he or she will be automatically enrolled in the Washington University plan and billed accordingly. The cost of the Washington University Health Insurance Plan will be published once the rates are finalized. Additional information can be found at the Student Health Services website.
