Health Insurance Information for Academic Year 2020-2021
Roger Williams University requires all law students (JD and MSL) to have adequate health insurance coverage. Roger Williams University has partnered with University Health Plans to offer a comprehensive Student Health Insurance Plan for our students. All School of Law students (JD & MSL) are automatically enrolled in and billed for the University's Student Health Insurance Plan. Students who provide proof of adequate coverage under an existing plan may waive the University's Student Health Insurance Plan.
All students are required to complete an online enrollment or waiver form by August 15, 2020. Students who do not complete an online waiver will be automatically enrolled in and billed for the University’s Student Health Insurance Plan.
For detailed information about the University’s Student Health Insurance Plan, and to enroll or waive coverage, please visit University Health Plans

It is important you review your current insurance policy to confirm it meets the following criteria:

- Your plan must provide insured benefits for doctors, hospitals, labs, pharmacies and behavioral health providers in Rhode Island.
- Services must be accessible in Rhode Island near the Roger Williams campus.
