Student health insurance
Health insurance waiver/request deadline: September 21, 2022
Estimated cost for 2022–2023: $2,503
All undergraduate students registered for at least 8 credits are required to have health and accident insurance. These students are automatically enrolled in and charged for Hamline's health insurance coverage.
If students have their own policy, they must waive the insurance charge through the link in Workday. To waive the health insurance charge, log into Workday and navigate to your Finances dashboard. Under My Accounts, select "More" to view all the links and select the link "Health Insurance Waiver or Enroll." You will be redirected to our health insurance partner's site where you can follow the directions to complete the waiver. Processing time for the waiver will be 24 to 48 hours. For more detailed instructions, please refer to the Workday Student Resources page. If you have questions or concerns, please contact Caryn Dahl at 651-523-2531 or 800-888-2182.
If students do not go online to waive this fee by the specified deadline, they will be enrolled in Hamline's health insurance plan and will be responsible for the cost of that coverage.
Note: Students must waive the health insurance each academic year. No waiver will be carried over from one academic year to the next. Students must be enrolled in at least 8 credits for the fall and spring semester to keep the insurance year-round.
Please note that Hamline's policy which governs the waiving of the student health insurance policy is different for international students due to visa regulations. Please visit the website of the Global Engagement Center for more information about International Insurance and Waivers. The deadline for students to submit their waiver form is listed above.
Graduate students are not eligible to participate in the university-sponsored student insurance plan. If you are a graduate student seeking health insurance for yourself or your family, you can learn about a variety of options through Minnesota's health insurance marketplace, MNsure.

- Lab tests not run in the clinic will be sent to Quest Diagnostics. Quest will bill the insurance that has been submitted at the time of the visit; prices may vary. Students are able to choose at each visit which labs are billed to insurance and which are billed to the student's account. Hamline Health Services does not guarantee that all insurances will cover labs at Quest. It is the responsibility of the student to check with their insurance company regarding coverage.
