Student Health Insurance

All degree-seeking students are required to maintain health insurance. Students who do not complete an Insurance Enrollment or Waiver form will be auto-enrolled in insurance. If you already have health insurance and want to waive the Rice Plan, complete the Insurance Waiver form indicating that other coverage is in place. If you are leaving Rice at the beginning of a semester and need assistance identifying insurance options, please contact to learn about your options.
