If you have missed the hard waiver enrollment deadline, but have not previously waived out of the insurance, you will be automatically enrolled in the insurance by your school, after the waiver deadline.
If you have previously waived out of the insurance but have since lost coverage due to a Qualifying Life Event please contact Riggs, Counselman, Michaels & Downes, Inc. (800) 346-4075
Please note: If you do not enroll for the year during the fall open enrollment period, you will not be able to enroll later during the 2021-2022 school year without experiencing a “Qualifying Life Event”. This means that the loss of coverage is no fault of your own or the policyholders (i.e. you get married or become too old to be on a family plan). You will be eligible to enroll within thirty days of this “Qualifying Life Event”. After thirty days, you will no longer be eligible.
Eligible students who do enroll may also insure their dependents. Eligible dependents are the student’s spouse and dependent children under 26 years of age. Please see the Enrollment Instructions below.
