Students must have health insurance coverage
The University of New England provides group plans for the consideration of undergraduate, graduate, and medical students through United Healthcare Student Resources (UHCSR).
All full-time students enrolled in at least 7 credits or more are required by the University to have complete health insurance coverage. Eligible students are billed once annually for the cost of the University sponsored plan.
Students may accept the University-suggested health insurance plan; may locate their own comparable plan; or if already covered by another equivalent plan, may opt out of the program by submitting a waiver.
Students will receive an email notification that will explain the University sponsored plan in greater detail and instructions on the enrollment/waiver process at the appropriate time depending on their program start date.

Health Insurance Waiver/Enrollment period for New/Incoming Students Beginning Their Program in May 2023
The Open Enrollment/Waiver period for all new Graduate and Undergraduate students that are starting their program in the Summer Term/May 2023 will begin on April 28, 2023, and go through May 26, 2023.
This is for incoming first-year students only that are enrolled in the following programs:
- Professional Science Masters
- Master of Science in Nurse Anesthesia/Doctor of Nursing Practice in Nurse Anesthesia
- Master of Science Physician Assistant
- Master of Science in Occupational Therapy
- Accelerated Bachelor of Science in Nursing
COM Students will participate in the open enrollment/waiver period for AY 2023–24 beginning on June 1, 2023.
All full-time students are required to complete either an “Enrollment” or “Waiver” for the student-offered health insurance plan once per policy year. This must be done in addition to uploading health insurance information to the UNE Student Patient Portal for the Student Health Center.
If you are covered by your own qualified policy and do not need the student-offered plan, you must complete a Waiver online. The health insurance charge will be removed from your bill within 3–5 business days after completing this Waiver.
If you are enrolling, please do not wait for Auto-Enrollment as this delays the receipt of your health insurance ID card.
Students who do not complete a waiver by the posted deadline will be automatically enrolled in the UHCSR policy at a non-refundable premium.
*Students that participated in the 2022–23 Fall/Annual Open Enrollment/Waiver period or the Spring period do not need to take any additional action for the Summer period. You will receive an error message if you attempt to access the enrollment/waiver site if you have already filed your 2022–23 selection during either the Fall or Spring periods.
If You Have Lost Your Health Insurance
If you have lost your health insurance coverage — due to age, moving, cost, or a change in family — and want to enroll in the UNE-offered policy with United Healthcare Student Resources (UHCSR) out of the open enrollment period, please email Carrie Bernier at firstname.lastname@example.org.
You will be asked to provide a letter from your insurance company if you have lost coverage or will be losing coverage. The letter must clearly indicate your coverage termination date.
