Rates are determined based on zip code so students should use their local campus address when enrolling to ensure enrollment in the correct plan. Upon completion of enrollment, you will be provided links to your ID card and a copy of your policy. Coverage starts the 1st day of the following month after you enroll. Automatic payment is required on the 20th of each month to maintain coverage. You can cancel at any time.
