Health Insurance

The University at Buffalo requires all full-time students to have health insurance coverage.

Early Enrollment Form: Medical Students

All new students will automatically be charged for the University plan on the first tuition bill for the semester.

Because your classes begin before UB's student insurance (Blue Cross Blue Shield WNY Nationwide PPO plan) begins, an extra month of coverage is available so the plan will take effect at the end of July with an additional cost. 

Please complete the enrollment form below if you do not have medical insurance that allows full coverage in the WNY area.  

The form can be returned to the office below by scan, fax, mail or in person:
