Student Health Insurance

As an institution dedicated to the study of health care, University of Health Sciences and Pharmacy in St. Louis also emphasizes personal health and well-being.

Students are required to complete an enrollment waiver and show proof of coverage by a comprehensive medical and prescription drug insurance plan or enroll under the University-sponsored plan.

Students must register for courses before completing the health insurance enrollment or waiver.

Students who have not completed the enrollment waiver and provided proof of coverage before the deadlines will have a hold placed on their student accounts until they take action.

A complete summary of benefits can be found at wellfleetstudent.com.

Wellfleet customer service is available at 1.877.657.5030.

The cost for University-sponsored health insurance for the 2020-21 school year is $4,073 which will be divided into two payments.

The fall semester payment will be $1,708 and the spring semester payment will be $2,365.

Waive Coverage

Each year, email reminders are distributed to students during the summer regarding the enrollment and waiver period. Instructions also are included in the summer tuition statement in July.

Students are eligible to submit an annual waiver beginning July 1. Students must register for fall courses before completing the health insurance waiver.

If your information is verified, no action is required for the spring semester.

If your waiver information is not verified upon the completion of the fall semester or you have a lapse in coverage, you will be required to submit another waiver or complete enrollment for the spring semester.

If you experience submission issues, please use a desktop computer and Google Chrome or Microsoft Edge to submit your waiver or enrollment application.

Automatic Health Insurance Bill

Every student will be billed for health insurance coverage for the fall semester. This charge is added as a reminder to complete the enrollment or waiver process.

If the waiver is accepted, the health insurance charge will be credited to your student account in August.

If a student does not complete the waiver process, this charge becomes permanent.

If a student completes the enrollment process and selects another method of payment, the charge is credited to their student account.
