Information about health insurance requirements for incoming students.
All entering students must complete and return all health forms prior to registration. They will become a part of the student’s permanent medical record and will be held in strict confidence at the Emmons Wellness Center.
All enrolled students must have health insurance that covers primary care services in Los Angeles County. Students must "waive" or "opt out" of the student health insurance every year. If you do not waive, you will be automatically enrolled in the Oxy United Healthcare plan.
Most PPO and POS plans, California-based HMO plans, and Kaiser plans qualify to opt out of the student health insurance. Insurances that usually do not meet the minimum requirement of the waiver include out-of-state HMO plans, Medi-Cal plans, and state-sponsored Medicaid plans.
