Student Health Insurance Premium Increase

effective August 1, 2014

Dear Students, Staff, and Faculty,

Beginning August 1, 2014, the Student Health Insurance Plan (SHIP) premium will increase by five percent. This means, the annual rate for coverage beginning in the fall semester August 2014 through August 2015 will go from $1133.00 to $1189.00.  The premium increase was necessary to continue to provide our students with the highest quality insurance coverage that meets the minimal requirements of the federal mandates of the Affordable Care Act of 2010.

University Health Services values our students and looks forward to continuing to meet all of their health and wellness needs. University Health Services is conveniently available for urgent care, health maintenance, and consultations at no cost to students. Please visit us on the web at to learn more. If you have questions about this increase, please call University Health Services 202-274-5030 or visit us at the health center – Van Ness main campus building 44 suite A40.
