Student Health Insurance Plan

Welcome to ERAU’s Student Health Insurance Plan, United Healthcare Student Resources (UHCSR). UHCSR provides comprehensive, affordable health insurance for our eligible students. Our plan complies with the Affordable Care Act (ACA). UHCSR is a Choice Plus Plan, which provides coverage for preventive care, hospitalization, surgery, maternity, emergency care, medically necessary physician care, prescription drugs and mental health.

Students must have health insurance while attending classes in Daytona Beach (this does not include Worldwide Campus Students).  Eligible students who do enroll may also insure their Dependents.  The student must actively attend classes for at least 31 days after the date for which coverage is purchased.  Home study, correspondence, and online courses do not fulfill the eligibility requirements that the student actively attend classes.

If you already have insurance, you may waive out of the UHCSR plan. Dates to waive out vary by semester and are listed below. YOU MUST BE ENROLLED IN CLASSES TO COMPLETE AN INSURANCE WAIVER OR IT WILL NOT BE ACCEPTED. 

Instructions to waive out or enroll in the plan are in your TO DO LIST in your ERNIE Account during the different waiver/enroll periods. At the close of the online waiver you will be asked to email a copy of your health insurance card (front & back) to dbwaiver@erau.edu to complete the waiver.

Health Insurance Information and Waivers 

Health Care in the United States can be expensive, especially if it includes a stay in a hospital. All Embry-Riddle students are required to have medical insurance. To ensure that all students have an appropriate level of insurance, a student insurance policy is included in your tuition and fees.

What if I already have Health Insurance? 

You are welcome to waive out of the university-provided healthcare if you are able to show your own insurance. The waiver window for the 2019-2020 academic year is July 1-September 4, 2019. This is a firm deadline and waivers will not be granted after September 4th . This insurance must show the following: 

  • The claims administrator for your plan is based in the United States and there is a US telephone number and address for submission of claims
  • Your plan provides for both emergency and non-emergency health care in the state of Florida
  • Your plan has participating hospitals, physicians, pharmacies, and mental health care providers within a 50-mile radius of the campus
  • You plan provides inpatient/outpatient mental health care and chemical dependency benefits in Florida
  • Your plan has a benefit for prescription medications in Florida
  • Your plan covers laboratory and radiology expenses in Florida
  • You are able to pay your health insurance plan deductible with your current resources
  • Your plan has a maximum coverage benefit of at least $1,000,000

Troubleshooting

  • If you have trouble logging into ERNIE with your PIN, you will need to reset it to continue. If the problem persists, please contact IT Support at 386-226-6990.

Waivers are only available during the posted dates. Download the Insurance Summary Brochure for further insurance information.

Failure to waive the insurance by the semester deadline will result in the non-refundable insurance fee remaining on your student account. Embry-Riddle is not responsible for insurance waivers that are submitted after the deadline.
