Student Accident & Sickness Insurance Plan
Kent State University College of Podiatric Medicine students are required to have and maintain medical health coverage while enrolled at KSUCPM. To ensure compliance, KSUCPM students are automatically enrolled in and billed for the Student Accident and Sickness Insurance Plan.
Student Medical Plan Information
Payment is due in accordance with KSUCPM's tuition schedule. Only if a student is currently insured under a comparable health insurance plan, may the student waive off of the KSUCPM plan and receive a credit on the student account. Covered Students enrolled in the KSUCPM Student Accident & Sickness Insurance Plan, may also insure their dependents. Eligible dependents are the Covered Student's spouse (or domestic partner) residing with the Covered Student and the Covered Student's unmarried children up to age 19 (or age 25 if a full-time student) who are not self-supporting.
WAIVER PROCESS/PROCEDURE – DEADLINES
Students who are currently insured by a health insurance policy (i.e., their own or through their parents) may waive the KSUCPM insurance plan with proof of other approved insurance. Online waivers must be completed by the last day of the waiver deadline. If the waiver deadline is ignored, the student will be responsible for the insurance premium.
No waivers will be accepted after the last day of the waiver deadline for the term. If the waiver deadlines are ignored, you will be responsible for the insurance premium. Your insurance charge will not be removed from your tuition bill without an approved waiver.
A student who initially waived coverage under the Policy but subsequently experiences ineligibility under another creditable plan may elect to enroll for coverage under the Policy within 31 days of the date of ineligibility under another creditable plan.
