CORONAVIRUS DISEASE (COVID-19): HEALTH INSURANCE FAQs 


The benefit materials, policies, and applications available on this website are currently reflective of the AY2022 plan year. We are working expeditiously to have the AY2023 information updated as soon as possible.
For now, students can view a list of AY2023 changes.
 

Academic Year 2022-2023 Plan Changes

We have returned to our pre-COVID policies and procedures. In the event that there is a sudden unexpected shift in the dynamics related to on-campus studies, HUSHP may make adjustments to the plan. An email communication would be distributed to notify students of any changes. Please visit the CORONAVIRUS DISEASE (COVID-19): HEALTH INSURANCE FAQs page for updates regarding temporary measures HUSHP has taken in regards to COVID-19.

Please be advised to always check your plan benefits at the start of each term prior to having services, and/or contact us for assistance.
