Policy for Waiving the Insurance

In order to waive the Jacksonville University Student Health Insurance Plan, your private health insurance must provide comparable coverage in the state of Florida. This means your plan needs to have doctors and hospitals in Jacksonville, Florida; cover you for services beyond emergency care which includes pharmacy, physician visits, mental health, surgery, diagnostic testing, maternity, preventive services; and does not have a high deductible. Traditionally, out of state Medicaid coverage does not satisfy these requirements. The insurance company must be based in the United States. Your Plan must cover you from August 1st 2023 to July 31, 2024.
