Creighton University Health Insurance Requirements

To ensure the studentís academic success, Creighton University requires that all full-time students (Undergraduate = 12 credits/semester; Graduate = 8 credits/semester) be covered by a comprehensive health insurance plan* for the entire academic year.  Creighton University Health Insurance requirements can also be found in the Creighton University Student Handbook.

  • New and returning students are auto-enrolled in the University-sponsored Student Health Insurance Plan.
  • If a student already has a comprehensive insurance plan, he/she must waive the coverage through the NEST.  International students (on an F-1 or J-1 visa) are not eligible to waive the health insurance coverage.
  • The on-line waiver process begins each July 1st and continues through the deadline of September 11th.
  • The premium for the University-sponsored Student Health Insurance Plan will remain on the studentís account unless the waiver process is completed before the deadline.
  • When Student Health Services becomes aware of a lapse in the studentís insurance coverage, the student will be automatically enrollment in the University-sponsored Student Health Insurance Plan and the tuition statement will reflect a charge for the entire premium.
  • This information is required on an annual basis.

*A comprehensive health insurance plan must include the following requirement:

  • National coverage for inpatient and outpatient medical care. (Emergency only coverage does not satisfy this requirement)
  • National coverage for inpatient and outpatient mental health care.  (Emergency only coverage does not satisfy this requirement)
  • Coverage is currently active and maintained for the entire academic year and summer.
  • Offers an unlimited lifetime maximum.
