Student Health Insurance Frequently Asked Questions


The deadline for students to apply for a waiver for Spring 15 is Friday, January 23, 2015.

The Spring Waiver Process opens November 17, 2014. Once you have registered for classes, please allow up to 3 business days to receive access to the online system. Please check your Armstrong email account frequently for updates.

How do I access the system?

Once you have registered for classes, please allow up to 3 business days to receive access to the online system.

Voluntary Students:
If you are not required to have student health insurance, but you would like to purchase insurance, click HERE for your options to enroll.

I have health insurance and plan to apply for a waiver, why has my student account already been charged the fee?
Because the insurance requirement is mandatory, students are required to purchase the UHC insurance unless they apply for a waiver and it is approved. If your waiver is approved, the charge will be removed from your student account. The sooner you apply, the sooner you should receive a response from the verification process. Plan ahead as you may need to provide additional information.

I can’t access the system to waive (or verify) my insurance. What should I do?
Please contact your department or Paula Smith at (912) 344-2514 or paula.smith@armstrong.edu if you have registered for classes and do not have access to the system within a few business days.  Please note: You must still go into the online system and complete the waiver form by the deadline after receiving access to the system.

I only have to apply for a waiver once, right?
No, you must apply for a waiver each semester you're enrolled if you meet the criteria for mandatory enrollment.

What if I don’t apply for a waiver by the deadline?
If you have not applied for a waiver by the deadline, you will be required to purchase the mandatory insurance. No exceptions even if you already have insurance. You must apply for a waiver and be approved

What if I have insurance, but my waiver is denied?
If you apply for a waiver and are denied, you should review your policy and answers/data and then resubmit your request through the system. 

Contact Paula Smith at (912) 344-2514 or paula.smith@armstrong.edu for further assistance.

What if I want to purchase the standard (Student Only) insurance?
Mandatory students (who are required to have the insurance): to take advantage of your insurance right away, go into the online UHC system and “verify enrollment.” You may then print out your insurance card and begin using your insurance.  Be sure that you go to http://studentcenter.uhcsr.com/armstrong to confirm enrollment. Other links will ask you to pay online and you do not need to do so as your student account is being charged. To ensure you have been submitted for the insurance, you should check that the insurance fee has been charged to your student account. If you do not take action, you will be automatically enrolled in the insurance.

Voluntary students (who are not required to have the insurance but would like to purchase it): go to http://www.uhcsr.com/armstrong and click on “enroll now” to enroll in the Armstrong voluntary program. You will need to enroll and pay online for your insurance. You may then print your insurance card and begin using your insurance.

What if I am a mandatory student and I paid online?
Please email paula.smith@armstrong.edu or call the Office of Student Affairs at 912-344-2514 for instructions.

What if I want to purchase additional insurance for my spouse and/or children?
To enroll your spouse and/or children, you will need to click on the "Enroll Now" button in the http://www.uhcsr.com/armstrong for voluntary enrollment in the system. Please note the Rate Sheet reflects additional charges per category. For the total cost, add the Student amount + the additional categories.
