Enrollment

Every degree-seeking student is required to have health insurance coverage, compliant with the Affordable Care Act, while enrolled at Rice University.

Therefore, all students MUST TAKE ACTION, during the open enrollment period, to elect to enroll in the Student Health Insurance Plan, administered by Aetna Student Health, OR request a waiver of the Student Health Insurance Plan, by demonstrating comparable insurance coverage.

To enroll, in coverage, due to a qualifying life event, please email studentinsurance@rice.edu.

**IMPORTANT: If you do not take action to enroll in or waive the student insurance plan prior to the deadline, you will be automatically enrolled into the insurance plan and responsible for the full premium amount. You will be unable to cancel coverage for any reason.**
Note: All Rice-sponsored F-1 and J-1 International Students are required to enroll in either the Aetna Student Health Insurance plan or Rice's approved Alternative Insurance Plan for International Students by Student Assurance Services (SAS). For all questions regarding the SAS plan, contact the Office of International Students and Scholars.
