Am I Eligible to Enroll in the Student Health Insurance Plan?
All students enrolled at UAMS are required to enroll in the UAMS Student Injury and Sickness Insurance Plan or provide proof of medical insurance coverage by completing the online insurance verification at studentlife.uams.edu by the waiver deadline date.
Students participating in the UAMS Student Health Injury and Sickness Insurance Plan may enroll their eligible dependents in the plan.
Full-time and Part-time students and students wishing to enroll dependents should enroll online.
You can enroll in the plan during the Open Enrollment Period for the various coverage periods. Your effective date of coverage begins the date the premium is received by the company or its authorized representative, or the effective date of the coverage period, whichever is later.
Continuation of Coverage of up to six months is only available to Insured Students and covered Dependents who have graduated or are no longer eligible for coverage under University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences’ Student Health Insurance Plan. Students must have been covered for at least three (3) continuous months before coverage terminated. Application for Continuation of Coverage must be made and premium must be paid directly to Academic HealthPlans within 30 days after the expiration date of the Insured’s Student Health Insurance coverage.
