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+ hours) undergraduate students and all HPU Health Profession Graduate students.  Non-health Profession Graduate students (EDU, COM, MBA, etc) enrolled in 6 or more hours may also qualify for the plan.  The policy is effective August 1, 2022 through July 31, 2023, with an annual cost of $2,984.00

**The insurance premium will be billed in two installments.  You will see charges for medical insurance on both your fall and spring tuition bills:

$1,251 – Fall 2022 Charge       

$1,733 – Spring 2023 Charge               

Total Premium Cost for 2022-2023:  $2,984.00

**University premiums are determined by our medical insurance policy provider each year based HPU’s student demographic, previous loss ratios, etc.  100% of this premium is paid to our medical insurance policy provider – HPU absorbs the administration cost to provide our students with the best policy at the best price.

Summary of Benefits

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

As a condition of enrollment, all HPU full-time undergraduate students and graduate health profession students are required to carry health insurance and are therefore charged automatically for insurance through our policy with United Healthcare.  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.

The policy for international students is the same policy as for domestic students at the same rates as listed above.


 Accepting Coverage

The academic year waiver opens annually on June 1. To opt into the United Health Care coverage please go to https://studentcenter.uhcsr.com/

**Once approved by the state the option to accept coverage will appear. Every student who has taken no action will automatically be enrolled as of August 1st.


Waiver Provision – Opting Out of United Healthcare Coverage

The 2022-2023 Academic year waiver will open June 1, 2022. To opt out of the United Health Care coverage please go to https://studentcenter.uhcsr.com/

Students who have “other comparable coverage” and wish to waive the HPU health plan, must complete the Waiver Form above. The waiver period will close on September 3, 2022. Comparable coverage is defined as individual medical and sickness indemnity plans, employer-sponsored group insurance plans, Medicare, TriCare, or Medicaid.

Any student not submitting a waiver by this date will automatically be enrolled in the coverage and the charge will remain on their accounts. If late waivers are submitted, students will be charged for months of coverage prior to the first of the month following the date of the submitted waiver. Premiums charged/paid prior to the waiver being accepted are non-refundable.

 


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 Student Resources 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.

***IMPORTANT***

  • Verbal or written waiver requests may 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 log on 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 or email us at studentaccounts@highpoint.edu.
