Enrollment for the 2016/2017 Academic Year
In cooperation with Wayne State University, MedInsure Group is offering convenient online enrollment in disability and health insurance benefits for School of Medicine students during the 2016/2017 Academic Year.
Disability Insurance Benefits
The School of Medicine requires students to maintain disability insurance coverage as a condition of enrollment with Wayne State University School of Medicine. Disability coverage is provided through The Guardian Life Insurance Company of America and is purchased annually with a single premium payment. The policy you have as a student at Wayne State University School of Medicine provides you with important coverage now and options to continue coverage through residency and into practice. This unique offering is a valuable benefit of your association with the school.
Health Insurance Benefits
Medical students are required to have health insurance coverage as a condition of enrollment with Wayne State University School of Medicine. Following the lead of many medical schools across the country, Wayne State University has negotiated a comprehensive group health plan at a very reasonable price provided by Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan.
To waive the requirement to purchase health insurance through the school’s group health plan, the student’s current health insurance must provide coverage and a waiver application must be submitted in order to qualify. Your waiver application will be reviewed and you will be notified whether or not a waiver has been granted.
For more information, see the Group Health Insurance Plan FAQ.
