Student Health Insurance Plan and Opt Out Information

To the students and parents of Morehouse College:

In our continued effort to promote good health among our students, assist students in meeting healthcare reform mandates and keep costs at a competitive level, Morehouse College reviewed several options for the 2019-2020 plan year. The plan year will begin on August 1, 2019 and run through July 31, 2020.

Morehouse College requires that all undergraduate students have adequate health insurance coverage. The College has specific requirements that must be met for all enrolled undergraduate students. The requirements include a plan that provides appropriate coverage to access patient care providers at Morehouse College for: emergency and non-emergency conditions, mental health, and prescription drug benefits. Coverage must remain in effect for the 2019-2020 academic year, with an unlimited policy year maximum and immediate pre-existing condition coverage.

Students will be automatically enrolled in the College sponsored Student Health Insurance Plan – Aetna and the annual premium will be billed to the student account unless a student choses to opt out, in which case proof of adequate health insurance coverage must be submitted. Students who already have health insurance for the entire academic year and meet the above requirements must submit a waiver by Friday, September 06, 2019.  It is the responsibility of the student to verify whether or not the charge has been billed to their student account.
