Health Insurance Policy

In order to ensure that each student has access to adequate healthcare services both on and off campus, the Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine has adopted the following policy:
All registered students are required to maintain an active healthcare insurance plan.  If students cannot provide proof that they have an active healthcare insurance plan that meets the Affordable Healthcare Act guidelines they will be automatically enrolled in the schools student health insurance plan through UnitedHealthcare.
Information will be emailed out prior to the Fall term each year for students to either waive out of the student health insurance or to enroll.  If there is no waiver or enrollment action taken, students will be automatically enrolled.  
The enrollment in the student healthcare insurance is for one year and students are not able to opt out of the plan mid year for any reason.
