Health Insurance Requirement

It is our experience that while most DePauw students are covered by a health insurance plan, some students do not have family coverage or their insurance plan has barriers to accessing care such as high deductibles, limited coverage for services received outside the health plan’s service area or an absence of participating providers in the Greencastle and surrounding areas. For this reason, annually students are required to provide proof of personal health insurance coverage valid in the United States or be automatically enrolled in an insurance policy provided by DePauw.

Insurance Provided by EIIA and United Healthcare

The DePauw-United Healthcare plan offers affordable coverage that will supplement the services provided on campus through DePauw Health. The plan is underwritten by United Healthcare, claims are paid by United Healthcare and EIIA manages and services the program.

  • The 2023-24 insurance plan premium for students with U.S or dual citizenship is $2,285 (Aug. 1, 2023 - July 31, 2024).
  • The 2023-24 insurance plan premium for students with citizenship from countries other than the U.S. is $1,474 (Aug. 1, 2023 - July 31, 2024).  Students without a social security number will be enrolled in this plan.

for students with u.s. or dual citizenship

Students who have insurance coverage individually or through one of their parents or guardians may choose to waive the insurance provided by DePauw University. Proof of primary insurance must be provided by September 1, 2023 at 11:59 P.M. to avoid automatic enrollment the University’s plan.

The portal to waive insurance will open May 17 and will be located here.  Students who waive the University insurance will see a credit for the insurance charge prior to the September 2023 bill.

For International Students

International students may not waive insurance provided by DePauw University unless they are currently enrolled in a plan that meets or exceeds the international student plan provided by DePauw University.  To request review of a policy to determine whether or not it meets or exceeds the international student plan provided by DePauw, international students should complete this form no later than July 21, 2023.  Students with citizenship from countries other than the U.S. will be enrolled in the insurance plan on August 1, 2023 if they have not submitted a policy that is approved for a waiver.

For Student Athletes

Students participating on an intercollegiate athletics team will need to have personal insurance coverage that covers athletically related injuries. Students can purchase additional athletics insurance coverage through EIIA if their personal insurance lacks the appropriate coverage. The 2023-2024 athletics insurance policy premium for Aug. 1, 2023 – July 31, 2024 is $800.

Students participating in intercollegiate athletics must also disclose their personal health insurance information to the Sports Medicine Staff; disclosure of personal health insurance to athletic training does not constitute an approved waiver. Student-athletes should contact your head coach or head athletics trainer, Kara Campbell, for more information.
