Health Insurance and Immunizations
Health Insurance Options
University recommends all full-time students carry health insurance. Student
health insurance may be purchased through the American College Student
Association (ACSA), the University’s preferred source for student health
insurance, or the student may rely on his or her own personal insurance policy
or his or her parent’s family insurance policy. Students who do not wish to
purchase insurance through ACSA must sign waiver cards providing the company
names and policy numbers of their personal insurance. Information regarding
student health insurance through ACSA is available on-line at www.ACSA.com or by
calling UE’s Health Center at 812-488-2033. Waiver cards are provided to all
incoming freshmen during the summer orientation and are also available from the
athletes are required to carry personal health insurance. Because of
participation in a NCAA Division I sport (includes cheerleading and dance team
members) the inherent risk of injury is greater. While the ACSA provided
insurance plan does cover intercollegiate athletic participation up to a maximum
of $5,000 per injury, UE encourages all student athletes to obtain insurance
coverage with higher maximum limits. Thus, the University has sourced preferred
vendors that can provide such plan options for purchase. For more information on
this alternative, please contact the Office of Risk Management at 812-488-2011
for information on providers.
Study Abroad Students
study-abroad students are required to carry personal health insurance. While the
ACSA provided plan offers Scholastic Emergency Services (SES), it does not
provide medical insurance for study-abroad students. To learn more about SES go
to www.uhcsr.com for the SES Global Emergency Assistance Services brochure which
includes service descriptions and program exclusions and limitations. If you
need to purchase medical insurance for studying abroad, please contact the
Office of Study Abroad at 800-423-8633, ext. 1085 for information on providers.
Other UE Programs
some current UE programs that require students (International Students, etc.)
to purchase health insurance due to professional, physical and/or logistical
demands of the program. Additionally, there may be new programs in the future
that will establish similar requirements. For more information, please contact
the appropriate department directly for more details of what insurance is
Students without Health Insurance Coverage
There is an option listed on the waiver card for the student to indicate if
he/she does not currently have health insurance and does not plan to purchase
such insurance. If this is the case, then the University cannot assume financial
responsibility for any medical expense necessitated by illness suffered by the
student while enrolled at the University. The student must acknowledge that
he/she is financially responsible for any and all medical expenses related to
any medical care he/she receives for preventative care or illness. Please
understand that some medical care providers may choose not to provide service to
students without health insurance.
Student Accident Insurance
For the 2011-2012 academic year, all full-time undergraduate and graduate
students will automatically have student accident insurance with a
per-occurrence limit of $5,000. This coverage is included as a part of your
Health & Wellness Center fee. This accident insurance will typically cover costs
associated with accidents, not illnesses. This insurance program will act as a
secondary coverage if you already have insurance. This insurance will typically
cover a deductible that your current insurance may not cover. If you do not have
insurance, it will be primary. For more information on this coverage, please go
to the following website
students are required to have a health card on file in the Health Center.
Mandatory documentation includes two MMR (mumps, measles, and rubella) dates, a
TB skin test with results within the last six months, and tetanus shot within
the last ten years. The meningitis immunization is provided to incoming freshmen
during the summer orientation program.
