SELECTING HEALTH INSURANCE AT PLNU
All undergraduate students are required to have health and injury insurance coverage. For your convenience, a PLNU student health insurance policy is automatically billed to all student accounts each semester. Students must indicate their choice to keep or decline the PLNU health insurance prior to the start of the semester in order to reduce delays in housing and class registration processes. Choosing to decline the PLNU insurance policy means that you must provide policy information on the portal and proof of health insurance by submitting a front and back copy of a valid health insurance card.
To select insurance coverage you must:
- Logon to the student portal (my.pointloma.edu)
- Go to "Health Insurance" and make your selection to waive or not waive the PLNU Insurance.
- If you waive the PLNU Health Insurance and elect to keep your private health insurance carrier, you must provide policy information online AND send front and back copies of your health insurance card before the start of the semester!
- Refunds for waiving the PLNU Health Insurance are not available after the start of the semester!
- Both steps 2 and 3, must be complete before the semester begins.
