Student Health Insurance

High Point University is pleased to announce that the United Healthcare plan has been renewed and will continue to be offered to all enrolled full-time status (12-18 hours) students.  The policy is effective August 1, 2017 through July 31, 2018, for an annual cost of $2,327.00

A summary of benefits for this plan and other additional information is available at United Healthcare Student Resources.

2016-2017 Summary of Benefits

Each Fall semester, all students are charged for the student health insurance in order for HPU to stay in compliance with the Affordable Care Act and as a condition of enrollment.  Students that already have a comparable health coverage plan are not required to purchase our insurance but must complete the required insurance waiver online (see instructions below) in order to remove coverage and charges from their student account.   Students that wish to purchase the HPU coverage must login and accept the insurance in order to begin enrollment in the United Healthcare policy.  ALL STUDENTS MUST EITHER ACCEPT OR DECLINE THE INSURANCE BY AUGUST 1, 2017.  NO ACTION TAKEN WILL RESULT IN AUTOMATIC ENROLLMENT IN HPU’S INSURANCE COVERAGE POLICY.

**International students are required to purchase the United Healthcare plan.**

 Accepting Coverage

If you wish to enroll in the United Healthcare plan, please visit United Healthcare Student Resources and choose “High Point University” as your school from the drop down menu.  On the next page, scroll to the bottom and click on “Enrollment Form”.  Follow the instructions and complete the required fields to enroll in coverage.

Incoming Students Insurance Waiver

Students who have “other comparable coverage” and wish to waive the HPU health plan, must complete the request through their 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 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.

How to Obtain Your United Healthcare ID Cards

Once a student has accepted our insurance via United Healthcare, they need to proceed to the United Healthcare portal following the directions below in order to obtain official ID cards for their health policy.

How to Access Insurance Information from the United Healthcare Website

United Healthcare now has a mobile app that you can access via your mobile device.

To obtain your ID Card information through our mobile app:

  • You may access your UnitedHealthcare StudentResources account through our mobile app.  It is available on the Apple App Store  and on Google Play . Download it by searching for UHCSR.

To obtain your ID Card information via the My Account website:

  • Access My Account by clicking here
  • Once logged in, you may select “Request Permanent ID Card” or “View or Print ID Card” after clicking the “ID Card Information” link in the left navigation.
  • To View or Print the Privacy Notice, please click the link at the bottom of the ID Card Information screen.


  • 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 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).
