Note: Dependent coverage will not be offered for the 2020/2021 Plan Year.

Due to auditing requirements, a combined annual coverage option is no longer available. Students enrolled in the fall coverage period may renew their coverage during the Spring/Summer Open Enrollment Period if they continue to meet the eligibility requirements.

We're becoming more environmentally friendly by going paperless this year! All enrollment will now be online, allowing you to enroll with more convenience and ease.
