At Bowling Green State University, we require health insurance coverage for our students.
We have tailored the United HealthCare Insurance plan to offer the best coverage for our students at a fair price. For more information of the plan details, or to answer any questions that you may have on this requirement, please go to www.uhcsr.com (type in BGSU as your school) or contact the Student Insurance Office by calling 419-372-7495 or emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
All International Students, regardless of credit hours, are required
by the University to enroll into the BGSU/UnitedHealthcare plan, with
the exception of those with approved coverage provided by their
government embassy, or approved coverage provided by a U.S. based
employer. Students who have coverage through approved policies will
need to contact the Student Insurance Office, and submit their health
insurance card, their student ID and health insurance policy
information in order to complete a waiver. All waivers must be
completed prior to December 15th, 2014. We cannot accept
waivers after the deadline.
Newly arriving International students must complete the health insurance requirement and health screening requirement at their scheduled New Student Orientation.
Thank you and best wishes for the upcoming academic year.
