Health Insurance Information - To Parents
It is extremely important that your son or daughter understand the health information requirements set forth by the University. Below is a brief summary of the action items that require your immediate attention.
All Seaver students are required to carry health insurance. All international students are required to purchase insurance with U.S. coverage that is comparable to the Student Health Insurance Plan (SHIP). Students must submit an electronic waiver each fall or upon entrance in the spring term as proof or insurance. Failure to submit the waiver by the deadline will result in automatic enrollment in SHIP. The waiver is open through September 6, 2017.

The University requires health care coverage for the purpose of limiting undue financial and academic stress related to illnesses during the academic year. A health policy will assist in meeting not only common illnesses treated at the Student Health Center or at a private physician's office, but also with the financial burden of illness and accidents involving more extensive care.
The University insurance policy through Anthem Blue Cross is compliant to health care reform requirements and has been contracted to include the lowest premium for your benefit; however, you may purchase any policy that has comparable coverage to the University policy. It is highly recommended that insurance coverage include local care close to Malibu. Wells Fargo Insurance Services facilitates our group policy with Anthem and provides customer service to our students for all insurance matters. A nominal administrative fee is added to the premium to cover University insurance-related services.
