Health Insurance & Immunizations
Required Student Health Insurance
Wake Forest University requires health insurance as a condition of enrollment for full-time, degree-seeking domestic graduate students, and all international students with F or J visas. Students who demonstrate comparable coverage may waive the insurance provided by WFU. Information on the waiver process can be found on the Enrollment, Verifications & Waivers page.
All students are REQUIRED to TAKE ACTION – either (1) Enroll in the WFU health insurance plan or (2) Provide proof of coverage and request a waiver by the deadline prior to the start of the program. All students will need to create a Student Blue account in order to request enrollment or waiver. Please visit www.bcbsn.com/wfu during the Open Enrollment period to take action. Visit the Student Insurance Information page at http://sip.studentlife.wfu.edu/ for more information on completing the enrollment or waiver process. You will need your student I.D. number, which will be included in the letter from the I.T. Department.
INTERNATIONAL STUDENTS: International students with F or J visas will not have the option to waive from the Student Blue plan unless they are covered by a plan reviewed and approved by the University based on the minimum criteria. Check the criteria to waive coverage. Additionally, the plan must be provided by a company licensed to do business in the U.S. with (a) a U.S. claim payment office, (b) a U.S. telephone number, and (c) plan literature available in English.
COST: The annual cost of coverage is based on the age of the student. For complete details, visit the Student Insurance Program Facts page.
