Student Health Insurance

Make Sure Your Health Is Covered

All full-time, registered students are eligible to participate in the University's student health insurance plan. We strongly urge students to maintain health insurance coverage. If you do not have existing medical insurance, the University contracts with a hospital-affiliated medical facility to offer Student Health Insurance.

  • Residential, international, dance, and theater students, and student athletes (including cheerleading), must carry the University's student health insurance unless they have existing health insurance coverage that meets the requirements set forth by the University. 

  • A student who is required to have health insurance coverage (see above), and has existing health insurance coverage, must waive the student health plan coverage, or the student will be enrolled in the University's student health plan.  Details of the waiver process for 2014-15 will be posted in the near future.

  • Enrollment information and procedures for Point Park's student health insurance plan for 2014-15 will be posted in the near future.

The 2014-15 plan year begins August 1, 2014 and ends July 31, 2015; however, coverage does not begin until the insurance company has received the correct payment and enrollment information.

Enrollment deadlines

Following are the dates by which you can enroll in the student health insurance plan or waive coverage:

  • Fall semester: Sept. 15
  • Spring semester: Jan. 31

Accident insurance for student athletes and performing artists

In order to provide optimal care to student athletes and performing artists, the University has purchased an athletic and performing arts accident insurance policy. This policy provides secondary insurance coverage for accidents incurred while participating in official University-sponsored athletic or performing arts events. Insurance coverage will not be provided for pre-existing conditions or non-athletic/performing arts-related injuries. 

Information on this coverage is available in the Athletic Training Office located on the first floor of the Student Center.
