Student Health Insurance

Student health insurance provides for necessary medical and mental health coverage for services beyond what is available through the Student Wellness Center.

UNLV is now partnering with a new enrollment company, Academic HealthPlans (AHP).  While the insurance plan terms and benefits are the same as previous years, how you will enroll in the plan or file a waiver if you have other comparable insurance is a little different.  With AHP's One-click system, you can both enroll and file a waiver on the same site.  Although the fee for the insurance will still be added to full time student accounts, you will need to go into the enrollment tab and activate your insurance.  Please visit AHP's website to review.  Please choose your academic group on the landing page to be brought to plan specifics for your group.

The Student Health Insurance Plan Is Not Open to Undergraduate Students

Undergraduate students who wish to purchase insurance should contact Nevada Healthlink for a list of insurance brokers who can assist in finding coverage.

International, Graduate and Professional Students

Please refer to the Student Health Insurance FAQs page for current semester insurance rates for international students, graduate students, law students, and nursing graduate students, and current annual rates for medical and dental students.

Physical Therapy Students wishing to enroll for the start of their program's summer term,  please use this link to enroll for coverage for the period 5/15 - 8/15/20:  Summer enrollment for PT program.

International students and full-time graduate and professional students will be automatically charged the semester insurance rates unless a health insurance fee waiver is requested and proof of alternate insurance coverage is provided. International, graduate and professional students must submit the UNLV online health insurance waiver form and proof of alternate coverage by the semester deadline (8/16/20 for Fall, 2020 and 1/11/21 for Spring/Summer) to qualify for a waiver.

Once approved, a health insurance waiver is good for one academic year for Graduate and Nursing students. International students must use the waiver process every semester. 

Students who received a fee waiver for the spring semester will need to submit a fee waiver request for the new academic year.
