Health Insurance Information

During the 2015-2016 academic year, Long Island University has partnered with Gallagher Student Health & Special Risk to develop a cost-effective Student Health Insurance Plan that provides our students and families with robust medical coverage at school, back home, and while traveling or studying abroad. The 2015-2016 Plan compliant with FINAL phase of Federal Health Care Reform and offers students and their dependents access to a network of doctors, hospitals, and pharmacies throughout the country, benefit maximums is now unlimited per policy year with Aetna Student Health.

The Student Health Insurance Plan is available to any and all that require foreign travel a re mandated to enroll in the Plan, even if they have comparable coverage. All international students, clinical students, residential students, Global College and intercollegiate athletes are automatically enrolled in the Plan but can waive participation online at if they have comparable coverage under a family plan or other policy. Students who enter during the Spring and Summer terms can also participate in the plan with shorter coverage periods, reduced rates, and specific enrollment/waiver deadlines. Voluntary coverage plan will no longer be offered at LIU for 2015-2016 academic year.

Beginning on July 1, students can go to and click on the “Student Health Insurance” link from the Student Center Home Page to enroll in the Plan, waive coverage, print temporary ID cards, and file or check claims. Coverage begins on August 15, 2015, which represents the start of the plan year, and extends through August 14, 2016. You can also visit the Gallagher Student Health & Special Risk website directly by clicking here.

Remember that if you have been automatically enrolled in the plan and wish to waive coverage, you must go online and receive confirmation by the waiver deadlines listed below.
