Creighton University Student Health Insurance Plan

  • New and returning students are auto-enrolled in the University-sponsored Student Health Insurance Plan.
  • If a student already has a comprehensive insurance plan, he/she must waive the coverage through the NEST. International students (on an F-1 or J-1 visa) are not eligible to waive the health insurance coverage.
  • The on-line waiver process begins each July 1st and continues through the deadline of September 7th. This information is required on an annual basis.
  • The premium for the University-sponsored Student Health Insurance Plan will remain on the student’s account unless the waiver process is completed before the deadline.
  • When the Health Education and Compliance Office becomes aware of a lapse in the student’s insurance coverage, the student will be automatically enrolled in the University-sponsored Student Health Insurance Plan and the tuition statement will reflect a charge for the entire premium.
