All full time Drew students are required to have health insurance coverage. Matriculated students are eligible to purchase health insurance from University Health Plans.

Students who already have health insurance may waive the student insurance through the online form in TreeHouse. Log into the student section of TreeHouse and click “Waive or Enroll in Student Health Insurance” under the Bills, Financial Aid & Student Employment heading.
Students that fail to enroll or waive the plan will automatically be billed for the student insurance plan on their fall semester tuition bill. Dependents can be enrolled at https://www.universityhealthplans.com/secure/enrollment.cgi?school_id=63
In the event of injury or sickness, the insured student should:
If at school, contact the University Health Service: There is no charge to students for routine care given at the Health Service and appointments with nurse practitioners and physicians can be arranged on-site.
If a student is referred to the emergency room, an outside specialist or laboratory: The fees will be covered or partially covered by this plan. Hospitals will bill students after an ER visit or hospital stay at whatever address was used at the time of admission. Claims forms should be submitted as soon as the bill is received. It is helpful to take a claim form with you to outside specialist visits when possible. Claim forms can be downloaded from this site above or are available at the Health Service. Should the provider require payment at the time of service, submit the receipt for services with a claim form. (See Claims Procedure below for instructions on how to submit a claim form).
If away from school: Consult a health care provider and follow his/her instructions. Should the provider require payment at time of service, submit the receipt for services with a claim form. Claim forms can be downloaded from this site above. (See Claims Procedure below for instructions on how to submit a claim form).
If medical attention is required for an insured spouse: Contact the Health Service. If the student’s child needs medical attention, consult an outside doctor or hospital directly. The Drew University Health Service does not provide pediatric services. Claim forms can be downloaded from this site or obtained at the Health Service. (See Claims Procedure below for instructions on how to submit a claim form).
Students must complete a claim form and submit it to the insurance company or nothing will get paid. Only one claim form is needed per illness no matter how many related bills are submitted. Claim forms can be downloaded from the top of this site or can be obtained at Drew Health Service. The completed claim form and all itemized hospital and medical bills must be submitted for payment within 90 days after the first date of treatment. Student insurance is in effect for 12 months beginning on August 15th.
Students are urged to keep copies of all transactions. Send the completed form and itemized hospital and medical bills to the plan administrator as soon as possible but not later than 90 days from the date of service.:
