LEHIGH HAS MADE ARRANGEMENTS WITH UNIVERSITY HEALTH PLANS TO OFFER SUMMER PLANS THIS YEAR. FOR MORE INFOMATION, CLICK HERE.
Graduate students enrolled in a degree seeking on-campus based program and registered for nine (9) or more credits, and graduate students registered for dissertation credits are required to have health insurance and are eligible to enroll in the Lehigh University Student Health Insurance Plan.
Note: Students must actively attend classes for at least 31 days after the date for which coverage is purchased to remain eligible for coverage. Courses offered through a Distance Education program do not fulfill the Eligibility requirement.
For the Fall semester, Graduate students who are eligible and required to have health insurance are required to select one of the two following options:
If you waive the insurance coverage by July 1st, the charge will be reversed on your July Fall semester billing statement. If you do not waive the insurance coverage by August 1st, the insurance premium will be due immediately. Students who do not waive or pay for the insurance policy fee will have their academic records closed and may be in jeopardy of having their registration dropped.
Voluntary Enrollment in the Plan
Graduate students obtaining Certified Full-time status prior to the insurance enrollment deadline are eligible to voluntarily enroll in the Lehigh Student Insurance Plan by completing an enrollment form and submitting payment for the premium to the Bursar’s Office prior to the enrollment deadline. Please email requests for volunary enrollment to firstname.lastname@example.org
Optional Payroll Deduction
Graduate students receiving assistantship or fellowship payments through the University have the option of paying for health insurance with payroll deductions. To request this optional payroll deduction, complete the "Graduate Student Health Insurance Payroll Deduction Form" which can be found at http://financeadmin.lehigh.edu/content/payroll-forms.
Note: Just like waiving or enrolling in the Health Insurance, Payroll Deduction must be completed annually. Forms for Annual or Fall insurance must be submitted by Sept 20 each year.
For students using Payroll Deductions to pay the health insurance premium, the Bursar’s office will apply an installment plan on your student account to allow both students and our staff to more easily keep track of the payment status of your insurance premium.
Payroll Deduction forms are processed through DocuSign and require approval by the Payroll Office. Once approved, the form is shared with the Bursar’s office so that we can apply the installment plan to your account.
