Domestic Students Letter

Dear Pace Student:

The University, in cooperation with UnitedHealthcare StudentResources, Hagedorn & Company, and the Allen J. Flood Companies, Inc., has designed a mandatory/waiver Student Accident and Sickness Insurance Plan for domestic students attending Pace University during the academic year 2012 – 2013.

Several coverage features of the program have been improved this year due to the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) requirements.   Most of these changes will provide enhanced coverage or services to students who participate in the plan.  The 2012-2013 STUDENT ACCIDENT AND SICKNESS INSURANCE PLAN FOR DOMESTIC STUDENTS ATTENDING PACE UNIVERSITYbrochure, describing the terms, coverage, exclusions, and premiums may be found at http://www.pace.edu/HealthInsurance, and may be downloaded and printed to your personal computer/printer, along with enrollment and claim forms. Enrolled students will be receiving ID cards in the mail.  Some brochures will be available in the Offices of the Deans for Students and University Health Care (UHC).

Please note that the Accident/Sickness Insurance fee will automatically be included on your student statement if you are a full-time undergraduate enrolled for 12 (twelve) credits or more, or a graduate level student enrolled for 9 (nine) credits or more.  For Full-Time students enrolling in September 2012, the annual cost is $1,013; in January 2013 the eight month cost is $649; in Summer Session I, 2013 the cost is $237; and in Summer Session II, 2013, the cost is $110.

The deadline for requesting a waiver for the Fall Term is September 21, 2012 for the annual coverage; February 10, 2013 for the Spring term coverage; June 13, 2013 for the Summer Session I Term coverage; and July 27, 2013 for the Summer Session II Term coverage.  Students who register after the first day of classes will be permitted to submit the waiver request within seven (7) calendar days of the date of their registration.  Requests for waivers received after these dates will not be honored, so please file early.  You only need to waive once for the academic year.  If you waive in the Fall Term, you do not need to waive for the Spring or Summer Terms.

Providing false information on an on-line waiver or letting existing coverage lapse without informing the Office of Student Assistance (OSA) may result in a charge for Pace Insurance coverage to the student’s account and/or disciplinary action.  The University or its agent(s) reserves the right to verify information regarding alternate coverage provided by the student as part of his/her on-line request to waive out of the Pace Insurance Plan.

Any part-time student registered for six (6) or more credits may purchase the Pace Insurance Plan.  All students enrolled in the Pace Insurance Plan may also enroll a spouse, domestic partner, and/or child (children).  Please see the Part-time Student and Dependent Enrollment Form for details.  These Enrollment Forms and the Claim Form are available at the Company’s website at www.uhcsr.com/pace.

Our plan administrator is The Allen J. Flood Companies, Inc. and all coverage questions should be directed to them at 800.734.9326 or email at Pace@ajfusa.com.  All claim forms and claim inquiries should be directed to Klais & Company, Inc at 800.331.1096 or online at www.Klais.com. We wish you good health and success.
