The Florida State University

2014-15 Insurance



Welcome

Parents and Students,

WELCOME to the University Health Services Student Insurance Management Information System (SIMIS).

Healthy students meet their academic goals. The FSU Health and Wellness Center administers the requirement for insurance coverage for the university. Every full-time student new to the university must show proof of health insurance that meets the FSU Board of Trustee requirements prior to registration once each year either through completion of a waiver or purchase of the student health insurance offered through FSU. Part-time students enrolling for at least three credit hours may enroll in the student health plan. Use this site as a resource as you decide on the options available to you. Review Private Insurance Requirements to the left to see whether your private insurance meets the minimum requirements for the waiver.

A tutorial on the Insurance Information page, with chapters earmarked for different populations, will walk you through step by step. The 2014-2015 university sponsored plans offered by United HealthCare Student Resources (UHCSR) are available for selection during open enrollment. The schedule is posted at the bottom of this page for each term. Plan premiums and benefits summaries are listed at the Student Health Insurance Plan Information tab. International students, visiting scholars or post-doctoral fellows at FSU on a J-1 or F-1 visa must purchase the international plan or an equivalent policy. The international plan meets all federal, state and Board of Trustees rules and regulations regarding health insurance. All other students, post-docs and visiting scholars may purchase the domestic plan. Both plans offer comprehensive coverage and meet federally mandated healthcare requirements.

Welcome again to the Florida State family. The Wellness Center staff is ready to assist as you transition to college life. Please let me know if we can make your move into the FSU support system a more positive and enriching experience.

Checking for Holds


There is a difference between the requirement to show proof of health insurance in order to be able to register for classes at Florida State University and using health insurance to pay for care rendered at the FSU Health and Wellness Center.

AR Due Dates:

Student purchases-Insurance premium payments are due on the day that financial aid is disbursed.  If financial aid is delayed, students do NOT need to call the health center to defer the payment.  Students do not need to make special arrangements for financial aid to pay health insurance premiums.  If the insurance charge is on the student's account when financial aid is disbursed, the premium will be paid by financial aid.  If there is sufficient financial aid to pay the whole premium, the student owes nothing more for insurance.  If there is not sufficient financial aid to pay the whole premium, the balance that is not paid by financial aid remains on the student's account and is the student's responsibility to pay.  The balance must be paid to zero before the student's next registration window opens or the student's ability to register for the next term will be blocked.

Post-doctoral fellow, visiting scholar, CIES student-Payment is due as soon as charges are posted to your account at Student Financial Services.  The carrier will be notified to begin coverage once payment has been verified by the Health Compliance office.


AR Due Date Notes

  • Insurance Premium Payment Due:  the day financial aid is disbursed
  • Financial aid delayed?  Do NOT call Health Compliance to defer payment.  It is automatic.
  • Not enough financial aid to pay the entire premium?  The unpaid balance stays on the student's account for the student to pay. 
  • How to avoid a registration block:  Have the premium due paid to zero before the next registration window is scheduled to open.
