Student Health Insurance Plan 2014-2015
POLICY: 2014-1320-1


Welcome to the University of Maine at Augusta Student Health Insurance webpage!


Beginning this fall 2014, the University of Maine System's seven campuses will require proof of health insurance as a condition of enrollment for all students fitting the criteria outlined below. In conjunction with this change, the University of Maine System is making a Student Health Insurance Policy (SHIP) available. To access a brief description of the Student Health Insurance Plan select the "Online Student Health Summary" link from the menu located on the left of this webpage.


UMA requires students in the following categories to have health insurance as a condition of course enrollment:


  • All Undergraduate students with 9 credits or more
  • All A.S in Nursing students
  • All A.S. Veterinary Technology students
  • All Certificate in Dental Assisting students
  • All A.S. in Dental Assisting students
  • All A.S. in Dental Hygiene students
  • B.S. in Aviation students


PLEASE NOTE: UMA students meeting the above noted criteria will be automatically enrolled in the SHIP with the annual premium of $942.00 being placed on their student account.



WAIVER: Those students who already have adequate health insurance coverage through another insurer and do not wish to participate in the SHIP will be given the opportunity starting, July 7, 2014, to withdraw from this coverage by selecting the "Waive the Health Insurance" link from the menu located on the left side of this webpage and entering their health insurance information.


Waiver Deadline Fall 2014: October 1, 2014

Waiver Deadline Spring 2015: February 20, 2015 (new spring and transfer students only)


ENROLLMENT: Those who want to take advantage of the SHIP and/or have no other insurance coverage beginning on July 7, 2014 should complete the on-line enrollment steps to confirm their enrollment and to get access to their ID card and benefits on the effective date of the policy. The Enrollment deadline is October 1, 2014 for fall, and is February 20, 2015 for new spring semester students. Once enrolled, be sure to "Create an Account" to gain 24hr online access to your insurance plan and to print your ID card.


Please select the appropriate link and follow the prompts to either enroll or waive the insurance if you are in one of the listed categories.


Online Waiver and Enrollment will not be available until July 7, 2014
