Mandatory Health Insurance Fee

All registered undergraduate students taking 12 or more credit hours, including off campus students taking Internet courses are automatically enrolled into The Student Health Insurance Plan at registration. The premium cost ($1124.00 per semester) will be posted to your bill.

Health Insurance Fee Waiver

All registered undergraduate students taking 12 or more credit hours covered by other comparable health insurance, may decline the Coppin State University student health insurance by completing an Online Waiver form in the Fall 2018 beginning August 15, 2018 and Spring 2019 beginning January 28, 2019. For your waiver request to be considered, you must complete this form by the waiver deadline of September 15, 2018 for Fall semester and February 28, 2019 for Spring semester. If you are experiencing a problem with the waiver site, call (410) 951-3958, prior to the deadline date. Once the waiver request is reviewed, students will be notified via email whether their waiver request has been approved or denied. Print the email and keep as waiver proof for your records. Waivers will not be accepted after the deadline. If you do not waive out of the health insurance by the deadline date, the premium cost ($1124.00 per semester) for this plan will remain, non-refundable on your tuition bill.

Adequate health insurance coverage is defined as medical insurance benefits that provide:

  • Both in-patient hospitalization and out-patient primary care in the Baltimore area. This includes doctor visits, specialist, radiology, and laboratory services. An out of state HMO may not provide benefits unless it is a true medical emergency; and
  • Coverage in force throughout the academic year when attending Coppin State University.

Affordable Care Act

Town hall meetings will be held each semester to inform students about the other optional health insurance coverage.
