Student Health Insurance

All International students, athletes and all full-fee paying students enrolled in 12 or more academic credit hours on the 10th day of classes will be covered under the University’s Student Health Insurance Program (SHIP). If you would like more information on SHIP, visit the Student Health Center.

The path to follow on my.BoiseState is:
Select “Student Center”
Go to the “Finance Section”
Select “Health Waiver App”

You must submit an online waiver application for Fall and Spring semesters no later than the 10th day of classes. If your financial aid pays your health insurance charge before your waiver is filed/approved, the aid will be refunded after your waiver application is approved. Additionally, you will not be charged a fee deadline penalty if the only charge on your account is for health insurance and your waiver has not yet been filed or approved.

The health insurance waiver process has just undergone an exciting revision! Starting Fall 2009 your health insurance charge will no longer be waived immediately upon application. This allows the Health & Wellness staff time to review your health insurance coverage to determine if it meets comparable coverage requirements. During this time if you select the Health Waiver App link on my.BoiseState, you will see a Pending status. Once the waiver is approved the status will be updated accordingly and the waiver will then post to your student account (for fall this will take place once fees are turned on).

If you are enrolled in fewer than 12 academic credits (excluding International students) and are not a full-fee paying student, you will not be charged for health insurance and do not need to submit a Health Insurance Declination.
