Enrollment in Mandatory Plan
Students that meet the criteria for mandatory health insurance coverage but do not have other coverage can enroll in the Student Blue plan now.
If you do not take action regarding waiver or enrollment, you will be automatically enrolled in the UNC system health plan after the waiver process has ended. Students that wait for the automatic enrollment process will have insurance coverage effective on August 1st (for Fall enrollees) and January 1st (for Spring enrollees) BUT may not receive an insurance card until mid semester.
Students who wish to enroll in Student Blue Coverage for Fall 2014 are encouraged to submit an enrollment request no later than January 31, 2014 to ensure timely receipt of insurance ID cards. Students who are enrolled by default will not receive ID cards until after the deadline has passed.
