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

The University REQUIRES all students to maintain health insurance that is comparable to the University-sponsored plan. If you do not have comparable insurance, you will need to enroll in the school sponsored plan. 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 www.ctgov/husky or call 855-626-6632 for more information (students should not do 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. Please remember to print a copy of the confirmation page and reference number you receive once you have waived online.

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. Your student account will be billed $1,313 for the spring only insurance plan (1/1/19-8/11/19) in late February; please do not send payment now.

Visits to the Health Center are free; however, limited incidental charges for in-house testing (e.g., rapid mono/strep) 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.

Wesleyan University will continue to offer low-cost loans to most students who need assistance covering the cost of the health insurance policy. Students who fail to complete a waiver by the deadline will need to file a petition in order to reverse any charges.

Spring Only Insurance Enrollment Fee                                              $1,313 To Be Billed

Thank you for your prompt attention. Remember, proof of private insurance (waive) or online enrollment at www.gallagherstudent.com/wesleyan is required by January 31, 2019
