The NOSMUSC Health Benefits Plan
NOSMUSC will be offering a Health Benefits Plan to students through WeSpeakStudent.
We will have both a Base Health Benefits Plan, and a Flex Plan. These plans differ in the distribution between coverages for dental, drug, vision, etc. Students will automatically be enrolled in the Base Plan. If students would like to switch to the Flex Plan that can be done from September 1st-30th, 2022 and can be completed on the NOSMU Health Benefits page.
Fees and Enrollment
For Undergraduate Medical Education (UME) Students, Fees are paid directly to NOSM University and collected as part of student ancillary fees when tuition is paid. Students will be automatically enrolled in the plan as of September 1, 2022.
For NODIP students for the 2022-2023 school year only, students will need to opt-in to the health benefits plan. Details will be communicated directly through the registrar's office.
Can I opt-out of the Health Benefits Plan?
If students have Health Benefits coverage through another means (e.g. parents, spouse, etc.) they can opt out of the NOSMU plan, but must show proof of this to be eligible to opt-out. Opt-out period will be September 1st-30th, 2022. Students will opt-out directly through the NOSMUSC Health Benefits page
For any students being the academic year in January, a second opt-out period will be offered from January 1-31st, 2023.
Students who opt-out of the Health Benefits Plan will be refunded via direct deposit through WeSpeakStudent.
Can I add a dependent to my plan (spouse, children, etc.)?
Dependents can be added to your plan, the cost to do so is paid directly through WeSpeakStudent on the NOSMUSC Health Benefits page during the Opt-In/Opt-Out period from September 1st-30th, 2022.
