STUDENT INJURY AND SICKNESS
Designed Especially for
the Students of
Colorado Springs, CO North Brunswick, NJColumbus, OH
Recognizing the high cost of insurance premiums today and keeping the interest and protection of all ourstudents in mind, DeVry University has arranged for a low cost health insurance program for students. Allfull-time students are required to enroll in this health insurance Plan, unless physical evidence of coverageunder a similar insurance program (individually or as dependents under their parents’ insurance) is presentedto the school.
Please read this Brochure carefully for current cost, coverage and benefits. Few standard hospital plans, ifany, reimburse you fully for the constantly increasing cost of medical care. Although benefits of the Plan arelimited in certain areas, it is designed to alleviate the basic cost of Hospital and some outpatient care resultingfrom an injury or illness. This Plan also provides the option of student, spouse and/or children coverage. Anenhanced benefit is available to students and their dependents. Special provider arrangements have beennegotiated with the Beech Street Network of Hospitals which may reduce your out-of-pocket expenses forHospital services.
Students may apply for the health program at registration. The premium cost for the insurance coverage willbe billed as part of their tuition and fees. The Student portion only of premium cost for Plan I may be appliedto EDUCARD. Although health insurance coverage is a condition of enrollment at DeVry University, astudent may complete a waiver form at registration if they already have their own health policy or are coveredas a dependent on a parent’s policy.
DeVry University sincerely believes that this insurance program will help reduce the high cost of treatmentfor sickness and injury from accidents that may occur. Should you wish for more detailed information aboutthe health plan, please contact the Student Services Office at the school you will be attending.
