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.
