Health Insurance

As an institution dedicated to the study of health care, St. Louis College of Pharmacy places a great emphasis on personal health and well-being. The College requires that all students be covered by a comprehensive medical and prescription drug insurance plan. Students will be required to show proof of coverage by a health insurance policy or enroll under the STLCOP-sponsored plan through Consolidated Health Plans (CHP).

It is imperative that students watch for emails during the summer regarding when enrollment will begin and how to waive this coverage. Instructions also will be included in the summer tuition statement, which is mailed in July. Students who have not shown proof of other coverage before the Aug. 15 deadline will be submitted for enforced enrollment and billed for the annual student health insurance plan through CHP. Once enrolled, this policy cannot be canceled. The enrollment/waiver process occurs annually in order to ensure the health insurance requirement is met.

  • The STLCOP plan will be in effect Aug. 1, 2018 through July 31, 2019.
  • A complete summary of the benefits can be found on CHP Student Health.
  • The cost for the 2018-19 school year is $3,875 which will be divided into two-semester payments.
  • Financial aid packages can be adjusted to cover this cost.
  • Students are eligible to enroll or submit a waiver between July 2, 2018 through Aug. 15, 2018.
