Health insurance is charged on the July bursar bill. For students enrolled in the Fall 2018 semester, coverage begins August 1 and runs through July 31 of the next year.

Special August Coverage – (for currently enrolled students who won’t continue into 2018-19)
All registered students are required to maintain insurance coverage. Students who are enrolled in SHP for 2017-18 plan year will have coverage through July 31, 2018. If these students are continuing in the fall they will automatically be enrolled and charged for the 2018-19 plan with no break in coverage. However, if students are not continuing and are registered for the summer they will be enrolled in a special one-month extension of the plan so their coverage extends through the month of August. This is required for students who are graduating in August, or who will leave or withdraw between the summer and fall terms. The cost for this coverage is $226. Please contact gradstudserv@cornell.edu or studentbenefits@cornell.edu with questions.
