Student Health Insurance Plan
School of Nursing and Health Sciences student attending clinical placement or an International students at SXU are required to be covered by a comprehensive health insurance plan that can be used in the State of Illinois. Accessing good health insurance at an affordable price can be a challenge so SXU has partnered with Gallagher to provide a United Health Care PPO policy for you.
Gallagher Student Health provides a PPO health insurance policy with United Health Care. They can be reached at Gallagher Student Health and Special Risk at 833-818-7087 or the Gallagher website if you need assistance.
Participation in the student health insurance plan is required for:
- All School of Nursing and Health Sciences students who attend clinical placement (undergraduate Sophomore, junior and seniors; and graduate students)
- All Communication Sciences and Disorders students who participate in clinical placements on and off campus (undergraduate seniors and graduate students)
- All currently enrolled F1 and J1 visa international students
Only students who are part of our "hard waiver" categories are able to sign up for the Saint Xavier University Student Health Insurance Plan. These are our School of Nursing and Health Science students mentioned above who have the insurance requirement as part of the clinical rotation and International Students. Insurance companies no longer allow us to give all of our students the option to voluntarily enroll in the Student Health Insurance Plan.
The deadline to submit the online waiver is May 18, 2020 for Accelerated BSN students and September 1, 2020 for all other eligible students - the online waiver cannot be submitted after the deadline.
To learn more about the Student Health Insurance Plan, Saint Xavier University's insurance requirements and how to waive or enroll, go to the Gallagher website. If you plan to waive, your current insurance must be fully compliant with the Affordable Care Act and provide access to doctors near your school. Please note, you should have your health insurance ID Card available. If you wish to enroll in the student plan please follow the instructions to enroll.
For those eligible students who choose to keep the United Health Care PPO policy, as an added benefit, you may opt to add your spouse and children to the policy. You can find details about this process on the Gallagher website.
