Insurance Activation for Dependents

Fall Insurance Activation For Dependents Accepted Starting June 18, 2018

If you are enrolling in KU classes for the fall semester and would like to add a dependent to your Fall 2018 KU UHC insurance, ISS would need to submit a request to UnitedHealthcare (UHC) to activate your student fall insurance early.  Once your insurance has been activated, you would log into your UHC “My Account” and enroll your dependents.  You would pay the insurance premium for your dependents directly to UHC. Please see ISS’ Insurance Rates and Dependent Options  webpage for costs.  (Your student insurance premium is still paid through your Enroll and Pay account with your tuition and fees.)
