Mandatory Student Health Insurance 

As a full-time undergraduate student, you are automatically enrolled in, and billed for Loyola’s health insurance plan. Office visits and all on-site labs and services at Student Health Services are available at no costs to students enrolled in Loyola’s health insurance plan. If you have other health insurance, please check with your plan provider regarding coverage and fees. 

You must provide proof of comparable, existing insurance coverage in order to waive coverage through Loyola. Visit our Student Health Insurance website page to view plan details and specific requirements for waiving coverage depending on if you are an international or domestic student. Reach out directly to our insurance providers with questions about your plan.
