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 Heath Insurance Plan select the "Student Insurance Plan Summary" link from the menu located on the left of this web page.
ELIGIBILITY: UMaine requires all eligible students to show proof of adequate health insurance as a condition of course enrollment. Students meeting the below noted criteria will be automatically enrolled in the SHIP with the annual premium of $942.00 being placed on their University 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 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 insurance information or:
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 should complete the on-line enrollment steps by selecting the "Enroll in the Health Insurance" link from the menu located on the left of this webpage 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.
