Dear Wesleyan Parent(s) or Guardian(s):

The University REQUIRES all students to maintain health insurance that is comparable to the University-sponsored plan. To ensure universal coverage of all students (except students studying abroad or not on campus in the fall), you will be charged up front the first week of July* for the annual school insurance plan. Students with private insurance should complete an online waiver form. Once approved, the charges will be reversed. Please complete the necessary ONLINE forms as soon as possible, even if your insurance has not changed since last year. Athletes must comply with this requirement even if they submitted insurance information to the Freeman Athletic Center.

International plans not based in the United States are NOT considered comparable coverage and students must enroll in the school insurance.  Any out-of-state Medicaid plans and HMO plans that only cover emergency services are not comparable and students will need to be enrolled in the school plan. Students with out-of-state Medicaid plans providing only emergency services may be eligible to transfer insurance to the CT Husky Medicaid plan while at Wesleyan. Please go to https://portal.ct.gov/husky or call 855-626-6632 for more information (students should not pursue this option alone without confirming with a parent/guardian). You can also speak with a Health Center representative. To view details of the University plan underwritten by National Guardian Life insurance with Cigna as the Preferred Provider Network, please check the detailed FAQ handout at the website below. For insurance questions, call Gallagher Student Insurance at 800-499-5062.

You MUST do ONE of the following (waive or enroll):

If you have comparable private insurance for your student and do not want the university-sponsored plan and associated charges, please show proof of insurance (waive) online at www.gallagherstudent.com/wesleyan. You will need to use the student Wesleyan email user/password to log in. Please remember to print a copy of the confirmation page and reference number you receive once you have waived online. Once approved, the charges of $2,614 will be reversed.

If you DO NOT have comparable private insurance for your student, you MUST ENROLL ONLINE in the University-sponsored plan at www.gallagherstudent.com/wesleyan. Even though your student’s account has been billed $2,614 for the annual plan, completion of the online enrollment form speeds up the process of activating the insurance on the start date of 8/12/21. 

Fall study-abroad students are never auto-enrolled and charged unless an enrollment form is filled out online.

Visits to the Health Center are free; however, limited incidental charges for in-house testing (e.g., rapid mono/strep, lab processing fee) will be charged to the student account. Students may request a claim statement to file with a private insurance plan. Routine laboratory tests sent to Quest will be billed directly from the vendor to insurance plans.

Students who need assistance covering the cost of the health insurance policy should contact the Financial Aid Office to determine what options (if any) may be available to them. Students who fail to complete a waiver by the deadline will need to file a petition in order to reverse any charges.

Charges Posted the first week in July for Annual Insurance Enrollment Fee               $2,614

Thank you for your prompt attention. Remember, proof of private insurance (waive) or online enrollment at www.gallagherstudent.com/wesleyan is required by August 12, 2021.
