Roseman Policy: Student Health Insurance

Roseman University of Health Sciences’ students are required to obtain adequate health insurance coverage while they are enrolled in their program, except students in the following categories:

MBA PROGRAM

  • Students who have only been accepted into the MBA program, but not in any other Roseman University program; and
  • Students who are only enrolled in the MBA program and who are not enrolled in any other Roseman University program, provided the MBA program doesn’t include an internship/experiential component.

COLLEGE OF NURSING PROGRAM

  • Students enrolled in the College of Nursing who have successfully completed their clinical component of the program, who only need to satisfy didactic (i.e., on-line and/or classroom instruction only) requirements to graduate.

COLLEGE OF PHARMACY PROGRAM

  • Students enrolled in the College of Pharmacy who only need to satisfy didactic (i.e., classroom instruction only) requirements to progress to the next academic year or to graduate.

COLLEGE OF DENTAL MEDICINE PROGRAM

  • Students enrolled in the College of Dental Medicine who only need to satisfy didactic (i.e., classroom instruction only) requirements to progress to the next academic year or to graduate.

Any student that does not fall into one of the categories listed above must have continuous adequate health insurance coverage that meets Roseman’s minimum health insurance requirements from the date of enrollment through graduation, regardless of whether the student’s academic schedules include classroom instruction or participation in clinical rotations.

Students required to have health insurance coverage must meet the minimum program requirements of the student health insurance plan selected by the University.  These minimum requirements and the process to request to use a student’s personal insurance coverage rather than purchasing the student health insurance plan selected by the University (i.e., waiver) can be found on the University website at http://www.roseman.edu/ in the ‘Students / Student Services: Resources’ section.   Waivers are required every year regardless if one is already on file from the previous year. Students who do not meet the required deadlines, will be billed and responsible for the full cost of the health insurance premium.  The University does not provide student health insurance coverage. Rather, the university works with a third-party broker.

Students required to have health insurance coverage during their enrollment that lose their coverage must contact Student Services at insurance@roseman.edu before the termination date and submit a termination letter within 31 days in order to prevent a lapse in coverage. Failure to notify Student Services and/or failure to have adequate health insurance could result in suspension from clinical participation and possible termination from the program.

Student Health Insurance Disclaimer

It is a student’s responsibility to comply with the Roseman University student health insurance policies and to know the beginning and end dates of her/his health insurance coverage.  If your health insurance policy has expired and you are not required to maintain health insurance while you are enrolled in the University, Roseman recommends that you obtain health insurance coverage that meets your needs. While you are encouraged to find a health insurance plan that works best for you, the following plan from Relation is an option for extended coverage* for you to consider:

Students who have already graduated from Roseman University are eligible to purchase a three-month plan offered through the University’s insurance broker.  Students who purchase the extended coverage* while enrolled may not be eligible to purchase the three-month post-graduation plan because you must be enrolled in the University’s student health insurance plan for the last 30 days of enrollment and graduated from the University.

Students needing a Form 1095C for tax purposes must send their request to our broker at 1-800-537-1777 or customerservice.la@relationinsurance.com.

Cancelling the Student Health Insurance Plan

Please note that once enrolled, the policy will last through July 31 of the following year. If a student enrolls in the student health insurance plan and is enrolled for longer than 31 days, no refunds are given if the plan is cancelled (due to the student gaining other eligible insurance coverage). Refunds are given for students who withdraw from their program/the university within 31 days of the effective date of coverage (not the first day of classes).
