About the insurance plan – Thomas Jefferson University


2022-2023 Enrollment Information

Jefferson requires all matriculated students (full time and part time) to have health insurance.

Students in online-only programs are not eligible for the Jefferson-provided health insurance.  *please note if your online program has a clinical/lab component you are required to waive or enroll.

This is an opt-out policy. Students who do not waive the insurance prior to the waiver due date will be automatically enrolled in the Jefferson-provided health insurance, and will be responsible for the associated charges.  Automatic enrollment will happen after the deadline.
