WWAMI Student Health Insurance Information


The University of Wyoming (UWYO) Student Medical Insurance program is designed to be an annual policy. Coverage dates are tied to the University of Wyoming academic calendar.


The 2020-21 policy offers coverage beginning August 29, 2020. Annual coverage begins the first day of fall classes for UWYO. WWAMI students have the option to enroll in the coverage beginning August 1, 2019 if you were not enrolled in the 2018-19 UW insurance and will be attending classes and need coverage before the start of the policy year. The premium will be prorated on a monthly basis.


Eligibility: Students must be enrolled medical students through the WWAMI Medical Education Program in order to be eligible. Students must actively attend classes/clerkships for at least the first 31 days after the date for which the coverage is purchased.


Enrollment Procedures:

    Students in the Foundations Phase (MS1s and First Semester MS2s):

  • When you register for courses each semester at the University of Wyoming (remember you are dually enrolled through Foundations phase), you are given the option to purchase Student Medical Insurance coverage.  This year, the Wyoming WWAMI office had to register all MS1s for your classes so you did not have the opportunity to choose medical insurance coverage.   If you want coverage, you will be billed per semester:


    • Fall (coverage 8/29/20 – 1/27/21)  $1,241.00
    • Spring/Summer (coverage 1/28/21 – 8/28/21) $1,241.00


YOU ARE NOT REQUIRED TO COMPLETE THE UnitedHealthcare Enrollment Form !


    Students in the Patient Care and Explore & Focus Phase (Second Semester MS2s, MS3s and   MS4s):

  • You must submit  completed Enrollment Form(see attached) and a check or money order payable to the University of Wyoming Office of Risk Management in the amount of the full premium. There is no option to pay with a credit card.  


    Premiums:  All premiums must be paid in full at the time of enrollment in the student medical insurance. 







    • For annual coverage from 8/29/20 to 8/28/21: Due Date is 8/29/20
      • Premium due: $ 2,482.00

    Third and Fourth year students are only eligible to enroll at the beginning of fall classes.  Exceptions can be made only when a student has a Qualifying Event (e.g. loss of coverage under parent plan due to the student reaching age of 26, marriage, divorce, etc.). Proof of qualifying event must accompany Enrollment Form and premium payment. All documentation must be received by the Wyoming WWAMI program office 10 days before the date coverage is to begin. Students have 31 days after the qualifying event to apply for a University of Wyoming Student Medical Insurance policy.
