Voluntary Student Health Insurance Information

Dear Alverno Students—

Thank you for your patience as we negotiated a voluntary student health insurance plan for 2014-15.   

We will be offering insurance through WPS.  This is VOLUNTARY insurance for all Alverno students (undergraduate and graduate) who are taking 6 or more credits.  The “plan year” begins on August 1, 2014 and runs through July 31, 2015.  You will need to sign up by September 30 to be eligible for the insurance.

Please click on this link: http://www.wpsic.com/waicu/  to read the plan brochure, check the premium, and complete the application.  Read through the brochure carefully so that you can make an informed decision about the plan.    

There are 2 options:  Option 1 is a “catastrophic plan” that has a $6350.00 deductible; Option 2 has $0 deductible and a 70/30 co-insurance/co-payment (the insurance company pays 70%, you pay 30%).  Both plans cover some preventative health care.  You can call WPS directly with any questions you have about what is or is not covered.

The cost of the premium for either option is adjusted according to your age (the older you are, the more expensive it is).   You can pay the insurance in one lump sum, or you can make two payments:  August 1 and January 1.  The monthly payment option is only for international students.  The application and the payments are sent directly to WPS.

Thank you again for your patience.  Feel free to contact me if I can be of any further assistance.

Be well,
