Student Health Insurance Plan (SHIP)

    

 

 

Relation Insurance Services is the broker that PAU works with for SHIP.  Insurance coverage for the 2018-19 academic year is provided through Aetna.

Student Health Insurance Plan (SHIP)

All full-time PAU students enrolled in residential and hybrid programs (including those programs that only require a one-week residency) are required to have health insurance and will be automatically enrolled in the student health insurance plan (SHIP) after the waiver period unless a waiver application is submitted and approved by the established deadline dates. The only exception to this eligibility requirement is for PAU students who reside outside of the U.S. while they are taking classes or training.

By enrolling as a student at Palo Alto University, students acknowledge that they are required to have medical insurance at all times during their enrollment. They further acknowledge that if they do not have an approved waiver currently on file, they will be responsible for paying for the SHIP charges applied to their accounts on a quarterly basis.  Details of our SHIP plan, information on the waiver procedures, and frequently asked questions are provided herein.

If you would like to self-enroll in SHIP before being automatically enrolled, you may go to Relation Insurance Portal and click on the Waive SHIP icon in the QUICK LINKS section for detailed instructions on self-enrolling.  Once enrolled in SHIP, coverage will be in effect for the remainder of the academic year. Students may submit a waiver once per year, by the waiver deadline date. Winter and Spring/ Summer deadline dates only apply to students newly enrolling for that term. For more information, including a waiver FAQ, please visit the Relation Insurance Portal.
