UO Student Health Benefits Plan Change
The UO Student Health Benefits Plan has made a plan change effective December 1, 2017, which will not impact current members. It does affect students who wish to enroll in the plan.
Plan change for domestic non-law students (revised 12-1-17):
For non-law students, only new UO students will be eligible to enroll during the spring and summer open enrollment windows. Exceptions to this rule may be granted for any returning student who loses health insurance coverage during the prior term’s effective period. The lost coverage must be compliant with the Affordable Care Act and the enrollment form and written proof of the loss of coverage must be received during the open enrollment period (no later than the compliance deadline).
Only students who are new to the university will be able to join the plan during the spring and summer.
