All students are required to have medical insurance while attending AUA. AUA provides a limited benefit injury and sickness insurance plan through United Health Care (rates are shown in the table above).  *Students can request a waiver of the insurance charge but must provide proof of current coverage by submitting a copy of their insurance I.D. card to the Bursar no later than 10 days after the start of the semester for which the waiver is being requested. Requests for waiver after that date will not be accepted (Please scan your insurance I.D. card and email as an attachment to bursar@auamed.org with “PROOF OF INSURANCE” in the subject line, or fax to Bursar at 732-358-0200).

 

*Students attending in Antigua who opt out of the AUA provided United Health Insurance plan will be enrolled in a Medical Emergency Evacuation (MEE) plan. Participation is mandatory and annual premiums charges of  $85 to $120 per year will be assessed.  MEE is not an injury or sickness policy but instead covers the cost of emergency airlift evacuation should it become necessary.
