Student Medical Plan fee waiver spring 2016


Health Waiver Process

CWRU is implementing changes to the Student Medical Plan waiver process in the Student Information System (SIS) in the Finance section effective for the Spring 2016 semester. The University's goal is to ensure that students have medical benefits that will help them stay healthy during their time at CWRU and to safeguard that they have access to appropriate medical care should a situation arise.

All students that are enrolled in one or more credit hours are required to have health insurance during their time at Case Western Reserve University. You are automatically enrolled in CWRU's Student Medical Plan and the fee has been placed on your account. However, if you currently have health insurance coverage comparable to the Student Medical Plan, you may elect to waive this fee.

Does Your Plan Offer Comparable Coverage?

For the Spring 2016 semester students will need to be prepared to respond to several questions regarding their current medical plan which will certify that the student has comparable coverage and is eligible to waive CWRU's Student Medical Plan.
