All Students are covered by a mandatory accident policy with a $2,500 limit on each accident. Benefits are supplemental to other insurance. Covered medical expenses will be payable at 100% inside or outside of MultiPlan network and no deductible will be applied. For a list of Multipan Providers visit: www.multiplan.com.
Health Insurance Information - Students do not need to get referred by University Health Services to see a specialist or Medical Doctor please go to www. multiplan.com
At the beginning of each Fall Semester (and at the beginning of other semesters for first time new incoming students) all students are REQUIRED to complete an on-line Insurance Registration Process please click on link.
During this secure process, you will be asked to either provide information on your current medical insurance coverage, purchase the Fordham sponsored Student Insurance Plan, or complete a brief opinion survey.
Having adequate health insurance is highly recommended, but is not a requirement at Fordham University for domestic undergraduate students in order to attend classes.
Effective with this fall semester, all domestic graduate and Law students carrying 6 or more credits will be automatically enrolled in the Student Health Insurance Plan (SHIP) and the fall semester charge for this program will be included on your student account. Students only registered to complete their dissertation will not be subject to this requirement. The charge for this coverage can be removed by demonstrating that you have other coverage. Your request to waive coverage under the program and thus have the charge removed from your account must be completed by September 10, 2013. Students who waive coverage in the plan for the fall semester will be automatically waived for the spring semester.
Graduate and Law students carrying 5 or fewer credits may purchase coverage on a voluntary basis.
The deadline to complete the Insurance Registration Process is September 10, 2013 for the Fall Semester and February 21, 2014 for Spring Semester.

In addition to completing the Insurance Registration requirement, the Communications Center & Marketplace is a place that you can return time and again to obtain important insurance information (including procedures to file an accident claim), ask questions, or link to Provider & Pharmacy Networks. You can also discover other voluntary insurance and discount products like, dental, vision, personal property, international travel coverage, and services to negotiate outstanding medical bill balances (out of pocket costs) that may remain after being processed by insurance.
International students can learn more about their insurance requirements on
