student health insurance plan

Full-Time Students

All full-time Tulane University students are required to carry health insurance coverage equal to or greater than the University requirements. Health insurance coverage is separate from the mandatory Health and Wellness Fee. United Healthcare Student Resources (UHCSR) is the student health insurance plan sponsored by Tulane University. The UHCSR annual insurance premium is $2,700.00. 

Each year, full-time students must take an action to either enroll in the UHCSR plan or waive enrollment by providing proof of other adequate coverage by the posted deadlines each academic year. A courtesy e-mail reminder with dates will be sent to your student's Tulane e-mail account.

  1. Review your current insurance plan to ensure your student is covered for emergency and non-emergency care in the New Orleans area.
  2. Read about the UHCSR policy. (PDF)
  3. Choose your action: 1) enroll in the UHCSR plan, or 2) waive enrollment. The student must meet these requirements in order to waive.
  4. Take your action: enroll or waive enrollment. 

The online enroll/waive process for students attending in 2015-16 academic year is available now. The final deadline to waive or enroll is August 31, 2015 at 11:59 pm. Please plan appropriately. Failure to complete the waiver process will result in automatic enrollment in the Student Health Insurance Plan, and the premium will be charged to the student's Accounts Receivable.

You should find the web site to be self-explanatory. However, do not hesitate to contact the Student Health Insurance Department at 504-865-5256 with questions or concerns. 


Part-Time Students

International Students

International Students holding a J1 or F1 student visa must complete an online waiver of student insurance if you are covered by insurance that meets or exceeds the Tulane University requirements. Travel Plans/Policies do not qualify for a waiver. Please click here for more information.
