Student Health Benefit Plan

All students enrolled in full-time programs (except EMBA and MBA/MPH), and all F-1 visa status students are required to maintain adequate health insurance coverage to provide protection against unexpected accidents and illnesses. Full-time program and F-1 students are automatically enrolled in the Student Health Benefit Plan.

Students are billed each fall and spring for the premium on their SIS Student Account. Coverage for new students begins on the first day of orientation and ends the following summer. Coverage for returning students begins on August 15, 2016 and ends on August 14, 2017. No refunds are issued once enrolled in the Student Health Benefit Plan.

Students can access their SHBP by logging into SIS Self-Service. Select the Health Insurance option under the Personal Info tab.

If your current coverage is ending

Currently enrolled full-time students whose existing health insurance coverage is ending can enroll in the University’s Student Health Benefit Plan before the published enrollment date by submitting a copy of the termination letter from the current insurance carrier to Student Services at carey.student@jhu.edu. New coverage is available beginning the 15th of each month and continues until the next regular enrollment date.

Insurance Waiver Process

All students enrolled in full-time programs (except EMBA and MBA/MPH), and all F-1 visa status students must purchase the University’s Student Health Benefit Plan. Only students who are already enrolled in a US-based insurance plan through their employer or family may request a waiver of the University’s Student Health Benefit Plan. To request a waiver, log in to SIS at sis.jhu.edu/sswf and complete a waiver request. The waiver period is from July 1 - September 15. Students will not be permitted to waive coverage after the September 15th deadline. It is the student's responsibility to track their student account and ensure they request a waiver on time.
