For the 2020/2021 school year California Health Sciences University (CHSU) has selected HSA Consulting, Inc (HSAC) as the CHSU student health insurance plan administrator. As you know, CHSU students are required to have active health insurance coverage. To ensure that students have access to a comprehensive, reasonably priced health plan CHSU provides a student health insurance plan. United Healthcare Student Resources (UHCSR) will remain as the medical plan provider for the 2020/2021 student health plan. All CHSU students must either enroll in the student sponsored health plan or provide proof of other acceptable health coverage.
The 2020/2021 CHSU/UHCSR student health insurance plan is a PPO plan with an extensive network of participating providers across the country. The plan will allow for unlimited benefits with a $250 annual deductible for in-network care, coinsurance of 80/20 and an out-of-pocket maximum of $6,850 for an individual.
The Open Enrollment/Waiver Period will be from May 1, 2020 - June 30, 2020. For the 2020/2021 policy term the effective date of coverage will be from 08/01/2020 through 07/31/2021. For enrollment in the 2020/2021 Policy Year the annual premium cannot be released at this time as it is still pending state approval. Further details will be released as soon as they are available.
