Student Health History

Student Health Insurance Plan
- Health insurance enrollment is required for all full-time, undergraduate students (12 credit hours or more). To ensure compliance, Averett University students are automatically enrolled in and billed for the Student Health Insurance Plan. The annual cost is $1,298. Cost for new, entering students enrolling in the spring/summer semester is $799 and for new, entering students starting in the summer session $499. The Plan is underwritten by National Union Fire Insurance Company of Pittsburgh, Pa., a member company of American International Group, Inc. (AIG).
- If you’re currently insured, you can waive enrollment and the premium charge with proof of alternate comparable coverage. Not all plans provide comparable coverage such as out-of-state Medicaid plans, certain HMOs and managed care plans. Be sure to check with your insurance company before waiving coverage. Please note that non U.S. based International coverage and short term coverage are not considered comparable insurance coverage.
