Enrolling in NUSHP after Waiving
Students enrolled in NUSHP may choose to purchase the same plan for their spouse and/or unmarried dependent children until age 19. To enroll, students will need to complete the Petition to Enroll Form and submit it to Student Accounts office with proper documentation, i.e., marriage license and/or birth certificate. Plan is effective from the date of the open enrollment period or date of qualified event and will terminate at the end of the academic year. See Effective Dates and Cost. This coverage is not proratable and cannot be waived once enrolled.
Qualified Late Enrollment
Qualified Event: Loss of job, aged off existing health plan, change of job, changing plans due to coop or study abroad.
Students (and/or their spouse/dependents) who, due to a qualifying event, need to enroll in NUSHP after they have waived may do so by completing the Petition to Enroll Form. Completed forms with supporting documentation from provider are submitted to the Student Accounts office. These forms must be submitted within thirty days from the date the existing coverage ends. If submission is beyond the thirty day period, it would be considered an unqualified late enrollment.
Unqualified Late Enrollment
Unqualified Events: More than 30 days has passed since existing coverage has ended, current coverage is not adequate, or personal choice to change plans.
Students who, due to an unqualified event, wish to enroll in NUSHP after they have waived may do so by completing the Petition to Enroll Form. Coverage under NUSHP will be limited to emergency care only for 6 months. Disciplinary action may be taken if a student knowingly waives NUSHP without comparable coverage.
