Dear Student / Scholar:

We would like to make you aware of an upcoming change to your family member’s health insurance coverage.  Beginning with the upcoming academic year, the University of Miami Student Health Plan insured through United Healthcare will offer coverage exclusively to students and scholars.  As a result, your spouse and/or child’s coverage will terminate at the end of this academic year (June 30 for Medical students, August 14 for most other students).  This change is in response to new provisions of the Affordable Care Act, so the University of Miami is not the only institution facing this change. 

Although coverage for your spouse and/or child will end in a few months, the University is committed to help provide guidance in finding another plan that meets your family’s needs.  In the coming weeks, you will be receiving an announcement about a group meeting to provide general information about other plan options, as well as an offer for one on one meetings with insurance professionals to walk you and your family through the insurance purchasing process.

If you have immediate questions about this change prior to the group meeting, you may contact Jennifer Cohen, Executive Director of HR-Benefits, at jcohen1@miami.edu
