Insurance Waiver and Enrollment Process


If you have health insurance and wish to waive the College of the Atlantic Student Health Plan, go to and click on the "Waive Insurance" link and follow the instructions to complete the waiver form. The form will request the name and policy number of your current insurance plan, so have that information available. A successful waiver will generate an electronic confirmation which should be kept for your records. You have only one opportunity to waive the insurance via the website. If you need to make any change in your election to waive the coverage, you will need to contact Lauren Rupp at or 207-801-5671.

For the 2015-16 Academic Year, the waiver process is available now and will continue through August 14, 2015. However, waivers received by June 19, 2015 will result in no health insurance charges being added to your bill. After June 19th, you will still be able to access the waiver system, however we would encourage you to waive the health insurance as soon as possible. 

Please Note: Once we have reached the August 14, 2015 deadline, anyone who has not already waived the health insurance WILL BE PLACED on the insurance roster and WILL HAVE ALREADY BEEN BILLED for the entire academic year. NO REFUNDS WILL BE MADE. (Also, there are not mid-year removals from the plan). 


If you do not complete the online waiver by the August 14, 2015 deadline, you will be automatically enrolled in the COA Student Health Plan and your student account will be charged. Insurance ID cards will be placed in On-Campus Mailboxes at the beginning of the term. A temporary card can be issued upon request after the waiver deadline has passed.
