Waiver Deadlines, Charges, and Coverage Periods
To protect the health and well-being of the NSU community, NSU requires all students to maintain health insurance coverage. Therefore, when you register for classes, you will automatically be enrolled in the NSU Student Health Insurance Plan, and your student account will be charged accordingly.
The NSU Student Health Insurance Department will send continuous emails to your @mynsu.nova.edu account to notify you of the charge, and provide waiver information. Also check your SharkLink account for charges.
ID Card, Benefit Summary, and Referral Requirements
Insurance ID cards will not be mailed out, but students may print their insurance ID card. Medical services rendered through a Tier I provider will be covered at 100%. Students must obtain a referral before receiving medical services with a Tier II or Tier III provider.

A waiver is valid for one academic year, not calendar year, and is only available online.
