Health Insurance Requirement: Every Student, Every Year

All new and continuing degree-seeking and international Emory University students are required to have health insurance. Under this requirement, all students will be enrolled in the Emory University Student Health Insurance Plan (EUSHIP) unless they opt out and provide yearly documentation of enrollment in a comparable United States-based plan.

Students who wish to opt out of EUSHIP will need to complete the annual waiver process via OPUS by for deadlines, please refer to Emory's Student Health Services website. Waivers are subject to verification by Aetna Student Health, which may take 3-5 days. After the waiver is approved, the EUSHIP premium charge will reverse systematically within 1–2 days from your OPUS account.

Please refer to Emory's Student Health Services website and Aetna's Student Health website for the most up to date information about the Emory University Student Health Insurance Plan (EUSHIP).
