All registered students must have health insurance while attending classes at the Prescott campus (this does not include Worldwide Campus Students). Waivers can only be completed if the student is enrolled in classes. The student must actively attend classes for at least 31 days after the date for which coverage is purchased. Home study, correspondence, and online courses do not fulfill the eligibility requirements that the student actively attend classes.
Year-round coverage: August 16, 2019 through August 15, 2020.

The preferred provider for this plan is United Healthcare Options PPO. If care is received from a preferred provider, any covered medical expenses will be paid at the Preferred Provider level of benefits. If the covered medical expense is incurred due to a medical emergency, benefits will be paid at the preferred provider level of benefits. In all other situations, reduced or lower benefits will be provided when an out-of-network provider is used.
HMO plans, Medicaid plans do not qualify as comparable insurance.
During the waiver period, Embry-Riddle students can access the insurance waiver by logging onto ERNIE.
Note: International students cannot complete this online waiver. International students will have to see Pauline Filemoni (928-777-3429) or FILEMONP@erau.edu in the Center for International Programs and Services (CIPS) to waive out of the insurance plan.
Failure to waive the insurance by the semester deadline will result in the nonrefundable insurance fee remaining on your student account. Embry-Riddle is not responsible for insurance waivers that are submitted after the deadline.
If enrolling in the plan, you will receive an email from United Healthcare Student resources with instructions on setting up an account and printing out an insurance card. For plan information, please visit our website at firstname.lastname@example.org. And then click on the insurance tab or contact Brie Weathersby, Billing Specialist at 928-777-6653.
All international students are required by law and University requirements to have health insurance as a condition of enrollment. This must be a United States-based insurance with major medical coverage, in order to meet residency requirements as established by the U.S. State Department. If you have alternate health insurance and wish to be waived from the University group policy, please complete the online waiver form using the instructions listed below on “How to Waive out of this Plan”. All international students who are waived from the health insurance requirement will be contacted by the Center for International Programs and Studies (CIPS) office for additional follow-up and documentation.
If international students do not provide proof of alternative coverage by the second week of class, they will be responsible to pay for the University insurance policy.
If you have questions, please contact Pauline Filemoni, FILEMONP@erau.edu or 928-777-3429.
