All currently enrolled Morehouse College students are required to have medical insurance coverage. These students will be automatically billed for the Morehouse College Health Insurance Plan (hereafter referred to as the Plan). The Plan only offers coverage in the state of Georgia with emergency coverage outside the state.
Students who already have their own insurance coverage have the option to waive the Plan. The student must complete a waiver stating that he has medical insurance that is comparable to, or superior to, the Plan and will need to provide the insurance company’s name and policy number for verification. Students have the option to complete the waiver process prior to the fall and spring semesters.
The cost of the College Health Insurance Plan is $444.50 per semester. This fee is automatically added to each semester’s tuition.
Yes, all students of Morehouse College are required to have current health care insurance that provides coverage in the state of Georgia. Those students planning to participate in study abroad programs must have coverage that extends abroad as well.
The College Health Insurance Plan provides medical coverage. If the student is under the age of 19, the Plan also provides dental coverage. In order to minimize the cost of the Plan, vision care and dental care (for those 19 and older) were not purchased as part of the benefits package plan. There are deductibles associated with the Plan.
Student health insurance is provided on a semester basis with the fall coverage spanning August 1 – December 31 and January 1 – July 31 for the spring semester per school year.
In the event of an emergency, the SHWC staff may need to provide health insurance verification for EMS, lab work, referrals, or urgent care centers.
No, you must waive out of the Morehouse College Health Insurance Plan during the opt-out period.
The opt-out insurance information is sent to all enrolled students via their Morehouse email account during the June/July and December/January months of each year. There is a deadline associated with each semester’s opt-out period. The student will visit the waiver link provided in the email, complete the waiver, and retain the waiver confirmation page that is issued once the waiver process is complete. The insurance fee will be removed from the student’s account after his personal insurance has been verified and he has waived out of the insurance plan.
Students are automatically charged $444.50 for the College Health Insurance Plan each semester. This fee is added to tuition. If the student elects to retain the College Health Insurance Plan during the fall semester, he is automatically charged and enrolled in the Plan the following spring semester. If the student chooses to waive out of the College Health Insurance Plan during the fall semester, he is automatically waived out of the Plan the following spring semester.
To qualify to waive the Morehouse College Student Health Insurance Plan, the student’s primary health insurance plan must allow him to agree to all of the following statements:
- I am not on an HMO plan outside of Georgia
- I am not on a Medicaid plan outside of Georgia
- My plan has an unlimited benefit maximum which provides medical care in the state of Georgia
Students who wish to opt into the health insurance plan should contact the insurance carrier directly to be added to the Plan (students can get the insurance carrier’s contact information from the staff of the SHWC). Once the insurance company completes its verification process, fees for the Plan will be added to the student’s account. The student can elect to have the insurance card mailed directly to him or to the SHWC.
Yes, your personal health insurance plan is necessary to help cover hospital and ER visits, specialty care, and lab/X-ray costs in the state of Georgia.
Insurance cards for students that opted to purchase the Plan are mailed from the insurance company to the AUC Student Health and Wellness Center. Students receive notification from the Wellness Center via student email when the insurance cards arrive and are ready for pickup.
