You must submit a Waiver each academic year during the open waiver period, if you wish to waive out of the SHIP.
If you successfully waive out of the SHIP after the charge has been added to your account, your real-time student account balance will reflect this change within 7 days. The change will also be reflected on your next tuition E-bill.
It is strongly recommended that a student’s insurance cover medical services (specialists, radiologic and lab services) in the greater Albany area. If your carrier does not participate with medical services in the greater Albany area we recommend you consider purchasing UAlbany’s Student Health Insurance Plan provided by UnitedHealthCare. An alternative option is obtaining additional coverage from your carrier to facilitate care in the greater Albany area.
