Enroll in Fellowship Health Insurance

The steps below are instruction tips to help you complete the online enrollment on the designated website. Please read through the following steps before enrolling online.

STEP 1 - Obtain your Fellowship Insurance information guide from your business office.

  • If you have a graduate assistantship, enrollment is handled in a different manner. There are fellowships that are administered as graduate assistantships. Your business office can help you determine your proper insurance plan.
  • A new hire may be required by their business office to visit the Payroll Orientation room in Stewart.
  • FOR STUDENTS ENROLLING SELF AND DEPENDENTS (SPOUSE AND/OR CHILDREN) Visit the Student Insurance Office in PUSH, Rooms 338/340. You may email us at student-insurance@purdue.edu if you would prefer to bring a completed application form with you to the insurance office.
  • FOR STUDENTS ENROLLING SELF ONLY, Go to Step 2.

STEP 2 - On the designated website, enter requested personal information.

  • Enter name exactly as it appears in Purdue registration information.
  • ACCURATELY enter your PUID number (Purdue University Identification Number). Enter first 10 digits, including the first two zeros. Do NOT use dashes. Example: PUID given to you on card or materials is 00123-45678 0. You should enter 0012345678.
  • Enter Purdue email address. Purdue email is the official means of communication by the university.
  • Enter local United States address, including Apartment number, if necessary.

Step 3 - Select Coverage Period

  • Students on a full year fellowship have the option of paying the full annual premium or breaking it into two premium payments.
  • If you select annual, you will be responsible for the full annual payment upon enrollment.
  • If you select Fall only, you will only be responsible for fall premium upon enrollment. You will need to renew the insurance no later than January 14th and pay the spring/summer premium.
  • Note that you will have to meet the eligibility requirement (attend class for the first 31 days of the semester) if you enroll by semester only.

Step 4 - Pay your premium online

After the student insurance office has verified your eligibility, you will receive an email indicating how payment must be made online. Once you receive the email stating your application has been approved, you must pay within 5 days or your application will be void.

Please note that there is no additional fee when paying with a Visa or MasterCard (this applies to United Healthcare Student Insurance premium payments only).

Step 5 - Print a copy of your payment confirmation

  • If no printer is available, save as pdf file and print later.
  • You will receive an email informing you how to access your electronic ID card. It will also contain a link so that it may be downloaded to your mobile device.
  • Carry a copy of your insurance card at all times. You must provide this information to the Check-in staff upon arrival at your doctor’s appointment.

Step 6 - Print or save a copy of the policy brochure. Refer to brochure for policy and coverage information.

Students with dependents - complete form and bring it to the insurance office, PUSH 338/340.

Enrollment must be completed by September 8 (Fall semester); January 31 (Spring semester)

If the above deadline date falls on a weekend, the deadline is extended to the following Monday at 6 p.m. ET (Eastern Time).

Those Domestic ( US Citizen/Permanent Resident) students who have taken no action to enroll by the deadline will forfeit the Fellowship insurance plan for the full academic year. However, if you were to experience a change that qualifies you to enroll in the insurance plan, please visit the student insurance office.

The only other option available after the open enrollment period ends is to purchase the Domestic plan and pay the full cost of the premium for that plan.
