How To Enroll/Waive Health Insurance

Information for Incoming and Returning Students for the 2020–2021 Academic Year

With the news that students will be allowed to return to campus effective for the winter quarter, students must show that they have health insurance coverage that meets the minimum standards or be enrolled in the school-sponsored insurance plan. If you previously waived coverage during fall 2020, you are required to resubmit your waiver information or enroll in the school-sponsored plan between December 1, 2020 and January 31, 2021. If you are studying remotely outside of Pennsylvania and wish to waive with a state Medicaid plan, please contact healthimmu@drexel.edu for waiver assistance. Please go to Aetna's Student Health website to complete this process. Visit the Health Insurance page for more information.

For more information on the Drexel Dragon plan, please watch this short orientation video.


To successfully waive the Drexel coverage, your plan must meet the following requirements:

  • My plan provides coverage for emergency, non-emergency, inpatient and outpatient care in the Drexel University area (emergency only care does not satisfy the requirement).
  • My plan provides coverage for Mental Health & Substance Abuse in the Drexel area.
  • My plan offers a policy year maximum of at least $500,000 in coverage.
  • Plans must be provided by a company licensed to do business in the United States — with a U.S. claims payment office and a U.S. phone number.
  • My plan provides coverage for pre-existing conditions immediately upon enrollment.
  • My plan will cover me for the full academic year.
  • My plan is not a reimbursement plan. (A reimbursement plan requires you to pay for all services up front and out of pocket.)
