Student Health Insurance

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.

All full-time students enrolled in at least 7 credits or more are required by the University to have complete health insurance coverage, and will be billed automatically for health insurance with every fall billing. 

Included with the fall billing, students will receive literature that will explain the plan in greater detail and instructions on the enrollment/waiver process.

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. 

Health Insurance Waiver/Enrollment Period

2020 Summer Term

(New Students beginning their program in May 2020 ONLY MNA, PA, MOT, PSM, ABSN)

The Open Enrollment/Waiver period for the Summer Term will begin on Wednesday, April 22, 2020 through Friday, May 15, 2020.

New 2020 Summer Term students are required to complete either an “Enrollment” or “Waiver” for the student-offered health insurance plan.

  • If you are covered by your own qualified policy and do not need UNE’s plan, you must complete a Waiver online. The health insurance charge will be removed from your bill 3–5 business days after completing this Waiver.
  • If you are enrolling, please do not wait for Auto-Enrollment as this delays coverage.

Please choose the option that applies to you:

Students who do not complete a waiver by May 15, 2020, will be automatically enrolled in the UHCSR policy at a non-refundable premium. Please do not wait for Auto-Enrollment as this delays the receipt of your Health Insurance ID card.

COM Students (Academic Year 2020-2021)

The Open Enrollment/Waiver Period for new and returning COM Students will begin on June 1, 2020 through July 1, 2020.

What to do if you have lost your Health Insurance and want to enroll in the UNE offered a policy with UnitedHealthcare Student Resources (UHCSR)

Students can encounter loss of coverage due to age 26, moving, high cost of current coverage — or maybe you have a new baby or just got married. To get help if purchasing the UHCSR plan out of the open enrollment period, please email Carrie Bernier (

You will be asked to provide a letter from your insurance company if you have lost coverage. The letter must indicate the date in which the insurance company will drop you from the plan.

Domestic Partnership Coverage

Students wishing domestic partnership coverage must submit an Affidavit of Domestic Partnership form to the Student Accounts Office located at either campus by the same due dates listed above.
