The Academic Year 2017-2018 plan through First Risk/UnitedHealthcare expires June 29, 2018. Information regarding this expiring plan can be found at: http://www.firststudent.com/school_page/the-college-of-new-jersey/home-tcnj/
For students who were covered only by the expiring plan with UnitedHealthcare, that do not have access to any other insurance, that do not wish to participate in the plan being offered through The College for Academic Year 2018-2019, and that need health insurance in order to waive the upcoming plan, they will need to call UnitedHealthcare at 1-800-505-4160. They will provide you with appropriate documentation to assist you with the enrollment process through the exchanges. While the open enrollment period for the exchanges for 2018 is closed, you may be eligible for a special enrollment due to a Qualifying Life Event given the expiring policy with UnitedHealthcare expires June 29, 2018 and policy coverage is being terminated. Assuming that there are not changes made by the Federal Government, coverage available through the exchanges will, if purchased, provide health insurance through December 31, 2018. Beginning November 1, 2018, the open enrollment period for the 2019 health insurance policy will begin and you will need to participate if you wish to continue your coverage for 2019.
