STUDENT HEALTH INSURANCE REQUIRED FOR
FOR SOME MACON STATE COLLEGE STUDENTS
The University System of Georgia requires that some students have health insurance coverage. The Student Health Insurance Program (SHIP) was developed to provide quality health insurance to students in mandatory categories at the lowest possible cost.
The Waiver and Enrollment period deadline is February 26, 2013. If you are required to have mandatory insurance coverage, you will be notified via your student email that your information has been uploaded to the United Healthcare Student Resources database. Once you receive email notification, you must take action through the United Healthcare Student Resources website by this deadline in order to remain enrolled in a program that requires mandatory insurance coverage. See below for the categories of students who are required to have health insurance coverage.
This mandatory requirement applies only to these students:
Students who are NOT in one of these categories are not required to have health insurance. You will be notified via your student email that your information has been uploaded to the United Healthcare Student Resources database. At that point you will need to take action by creating an account through the UHC website (UHCSR-Macon State). You will then need to either verify that you have adequate insurance coverage by submitting the SHIP waiver form, or you will need to purchase the SHIP plan by completing the Enrollment Form. See below for more information. If you are not an international student, if you have not been officially ADMITTED to the Nursing or to the Associate of Science in Respiratory Therapy program, or if you are not enrolled in the courses listed above, you are not eligible for a mandatory policy. See Voluntary Enrollment at United Healthcare Student Resources.
If you are not covered by insurance, or your coverage does not qualify for a SHIP waiver, you will need to create an account and complete the Enrollment Form on the UHCSR- Macon State page and purchase the SHIP insurance coverage if you wish to remain a student in the program. Once you complete the Enrollment Form, the SHIP fee will be automatically applied to your BannerWeb account. The University System of Georgia developed the student health insurance program in order to provide quality health insurance to students in the mandated categories of study at the lowest possible cost.
