All students that do NOT take action to enroll in coverage, or submit a waiver by August 30th (Fall) or January 17th (Spring) will be automatically enrolled in coverage and responsible for the annual (fall) or Spring premium. Once you are enrolled in coverage, you cannot cancel for any reason. If you do not enroll yourself in coverage, and you are automatically enrolled in Aetna Student Health, please note your enrollment process will be delayed. You may need to pay out of pocket for medical services until your enrollment has been processed. Once processed, you will be able to file a claim for reimbursement. The coverage will not be prorated and will be effective 08/15/2019 (Fall) or 01/01/2020 (Spring). Please understand the risk of not electing to enroll yourself in coverage during the open enrollment period. If you are enrolled in annual coverage, you will not be able to submit a waiver for spring.
Note: If you are a returning student, you must be enrolled in courses before you can access the enrollment and waiver application. All students (new and returning) must have completed the Rice enrollment requirements and have tuition assessed on their student bill to access the enrollment/waiver form. Students enrolled in an online program or the Glasscock School of Continuing Studies are not eligible for Student Health Insurance and do not need to meet the waiver requirements.
