REMINDER TO BUSINESS OFFICES: Appointment Changes Prompt Grad Students’ Need to Re-enroll for Medical Coverage - 07/21/09

The Graduate School Business Office and Purdue Student Health Center (PUSH) are reminding business offices to notify graduate students that their insurance coverage will stop when they transfer from their staff appointments to fellowships. To be assured of health coverage, grad students must sign up for fellowship insurance within 30 days following their new appointment.

However, because new coverage does not take effect until the students enroll in the health care plan, they can avoid a lapse in coverage by completing enrollment before the ending date of their graduate assistantship health insurance plan.

The Graduate School advises students to contact the PUSH insurance office by phone at 496-3998 or email at as soon as they receive their fellowship offer.
