If you have an Embassy-sponsored insurance plan, you must submit proof of this once you arrive at the University by bringing a copy of your Embassy-sponsored health insurance card to our office in Creese Student Center, room 215, by the posted deadline date. If you do not bring this verification to our office by the compliance deadline date, the premium amount will remain on your student account and you will be responsible for payment.

All student-veterans are required to demonstrate proof of health insurance each academic year. Students are able to demonstrate proof of insurance through a waiver process or enrolling in the Drexel-sponsored plan. For student-veterans, the military insurance is a form of acceptable coverage, and if you decide to waive the Drexel Student Health Insurance Plan, you can go to Aetna's website and use your Tricare card to demonstrate proof of coverage. You can also bring your military ID to the Office of Health Insurance and Immunizations in the Creese Student Center, Suite 215 to waive the Drexel Student Health Insurance Plan.

If you do not waive or enroll in Drexel's Student Health Insurance Plan by the deadline, then you will be default enrolled into the plan and the premium amount will be placed on your University bill. Once this premium amount is added, it cannot be removed.
