Student Medical Insurance

BASIC INFORMATION

WHAT-Automatic enrollment and billing for a comprehensive health insurance program every Fall and Spring semester. Spring semester coverage includes the summer months (June, July, and August). Plus, those students who are part time (6 hours or more-undergrad, 4.5 hours or more-grad) are also charged for a part-time benefit package.  Purchase of the Optional Student Fee Package* is required to enroll in the Optional Health Insurance.  This fee will automatically be assessed when the insurance is selected if the Optional Student Fee Package has not been previously obtained.

Information on coverage and prices may be obtained by calling the Student Insurance Advocate at (307)766-3025.

WHO - University of Wyoming Students-All Full Time Undergraduates and Graduate Students, Part time students taking at least 6 hours (undergrad) or 4.5 hours (graduate), interns and outreach students.

WHY - The University of Wyoming Board of Trustees elected to offer a program which had the least impact on the students, yet maintained a comprehensive program at a reasonable cost.

WHEN - Each Fall and Spring semester, all eligible students must make an insurance selection "yes" or "no" when they register for classes using WyoWeb.

  • During the registration process, after selecting the “Term” click on Health Insurance Coverage
    • If you click on YES, your account will automatically be charged the Optional Student Fee Page and insurance premium.
    • If you select NO, your account will not be charged for the Optional Student Fee Package and the insurance premium

Students will be asked this question before registering for the spring and fall semesters.  Arrangements can be made to purchase insurance during summer session by contacting the Student Insurance Advocate. 

International students may waive the UW Student Medical Insurance if their circumstances meet certain requirements associated with University Regulation 8-248 and the corresponding policy. Both are found here:
