Student Insurance

High Point University is pleased to announce that the United Healthcare plan has been renewed and will continue to be offered to all students.  The policy is effective August 1, 2015 through July 31, 2016, for an annual cost of $1,206.00

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

2015-2016 Summary of Benefits

Each Fall semester, all students are charged for the student health insurance premiums. Students have the option to either accept or waive the student health insurance.  International students are required to purchase the United Healthcare plan.

ELECTING TO ACCEPT THE STUDENT HEALTH PLAN

Students who do not have health care coverage or students who choose to purchase the policy in addition to their existing health care coverage may enroll through their My HPU account. After logging on to your account, look for the “Health Insurance Information” link.

IF YOU DO NOT HAVE HEALTH INSURANCE
  • Upon clicking into the “Health Insurance Information” link, you will be asked “Do you currently have insurance?”  If you do not currently have health insurance, select “No” and you will be asked to confirm if you want to purchase insurance from HPU.  Click “Yes“.  Insurance cards will be mailed to your home address.
IF YOU WANT TO ADD HPU INSURANCE IN ADDITION TO YOUR CURRENT POLICY
  • Upon clicking into the “Health Insurance Information” link, you will be asked “Do you currently have insurance?”  Click “Yes” and you will be taken to a screen with a questionnaire.  At the top of the questionnaire, click the link that says “I have health insurance coverage but wish to select the HPU plan anyway!“.  Once completed, insurance cards will be mailed to your home address.

Once you accept the High Point University Insurance Plan, you will be notified via email to log on to the United Healthcare website.  From there you will be prompted to create an account following the instructions below.

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 MyStuff 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 September 1, 2015. Enrollment and changes deadline for the Fall policy term is September 1, 2015.

Waiving HPU Health Coverage

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.

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.
