Does your current health insurance coverage exempt you from purchasing the USF Student Health Plan? The following criteria must be met for domestic or international students:

- My annual Deductible is $2500 (individual) and/or $5000(family) or less.
- My plan includes co-insurance that does not exceed 20%.
- My plan provides access to medical care within 20 miles of my school campus. (If you are waiving with Medicaid/Medi-Cal or Kaiser, please ensure that you transfer your healthcare coverage near your campus location).
- My plan covers hospital stays for all medical, surgical, and mental health/substance abuse conditions without limitations.
- My plan allows unlimited doctor office visits (primary care visits) for medical and mental health.
- In the event I terminate or lose my current insurance coverage I agree to contact USF Health Promotion Services within 15 days.
Tip: Before you fill out the waiver, please have the following information ready: Insurance Company Name, Insurance Company Phone Number, Policy Holder Name, and Policy Number for your respective health insurance plan.
Please be advised all health plans will be reviewed by the University insurance broker to ensure the plan meets USF requirements.
* Please take note that enrolling in MediCover will not be acceptable when applying for an insurance waiver for this upcoming school year. The University cannot adequately support our student enrolling in these programs, which has become even more important when considering the current COVD-19 pandemic.
