How to Access Insurance Information from the United Healthcare Website


WAIVER PROVISION – OPTING OUT OF MANDATORY COVERAGE

Students who have “other comparable coverage” and wish to waive the HPU health plan, must complete the request through their my.highpoint.edu account. Comparable coverage is defined as individual medical and sickness indemnity plans, employer-sponsored group insurance plans, Medicare, TriCare, or Medicaid. All F1 and J1 International students are required to purchase the UnitedHealthCare Plan.  All students required to have insurance who do NOT submit a completed waiver and proof comparable coverage will be automatically enrolled in the program on August 29, 2016.  Enrollment and changes deadline for the Fall policy term is August 29, 2016.  Once the waiver is completed, the charges for insurance will be removed from your student account within 48 hours.

***IMPORTANT***

  • Verbal or written waiver requests will NOT be accepted.  Submission of medical health forms or insurance cards to Student Health Services does not take the place of completing the online waiver.  You must logon to my.highpoint.edu and complete the insurance questionnaire in order to waive coverage and remove charges from your account.
  • You will need your HPU student ID number to begin the waiver process. Your ID number is 7 digits and may include one or two leading zero’s. It does not include any letters. You will also need your medical insurance card to complete the waiver.
  • Be prepared to provide your birth date as well as the name and birth date  for the primary insurance policy holder (usually a parent or guardian).

If you have any questions about this process or need help completing a waiver, please call the Office of Student Accounts at 336-841-9259.
