Health Insurance

All students enrolled full-time at Western University of Health Sciences must maintain a health insurance policy for the duration of their education. Proof of such coverage is required at the time of registration for each academic year.

Health insurance is available through the University at a reasonable cost. You will automatically be enrolled in the school sponsored insurance plan (SHIP), unless a waiver is submitted and approved by the deadlines posted for your program/year. If you have your own health insurance coverage you may submit a waiver request during the fall 2013 online registration process. For additional information, including current pricing please visit the Student Affairs Health Insurance webpage .
