2021-2022 Health Insurance Information

St. Catherine University requires and provides health insurance for the students in the College for Women, OTA Online, and the College for Adults bachelor's and associate programs that are enrolled in 8 or more credits. The University does not provide insurance options for graduate students.

College for Women, College for Adults—Associate, Bachelor's, and OTA Students

St. Catherine University requires that all degree-seeking students enrolled in the College for Women, OTA Online, and College for Adults associate and bachelor's students that are enrolled in 8 or more credits be covered by health insurance.

New Billing Process for Health Insurance

Eligible students are automatically enrolled in the University-sponsored Student Health Insurance Plan unless they waive coverage. Approved waivers are valid for one policy year (8/15-8/14). If students do not waive the Student Health Insurance Plan by the established deadline, they will be enrolled and billed the associated premium on their student account. Please note the change in billing: charges will only be placed on student accounts that have not waived by the deadline, or have chosen to enroll. There will no longer be charges placed on all accounts, with credits placed for waiving to offset those charges.

This is an annual plan. Students who have not waived out by their initial deadline will remain enrolled for the entire coverage period, including students that graduate, or leave the University, and will be financially responsible for the full premium amount.

Students with the University Sponsored Health Insurance through UHC can be seen at the Health and Wellness Clinic for all covered expenses at no cost.

Important Plan Information

Please note: Your student account will only be billed at the close of the waiver period if you have not completed an approved waiver, or you have chosen to enroll. Any student that has an approved waiver on file by their designated deadline will not be billed for health insurance.
