The premium cost of $2,625 is included on the 2022 fall term bill. It can be refunded if the policy is waived by the waiver deadline of July 31, 2022. No adjustments can be made to the student's account after that date.

In order to waive the Student Health Insurance Program offered by Academic Health Plans, the student must have comparable policy coverage that provides benefits to providers in Oberlin, Ohio. You will need to consult your private insurance company for these details.


Academic Health Plans website has the waiver form available online at Sending health forms to Student Health does not mean you have automatically waived the insurance. You must complete the waiver form each year.

The providers at Oberlin College Student Health Services want your medical care and treatment to be appropriate and efficient. No copays are collected. Bring your Oberlin College Student Photo ID to each visit. However, there are times when further diagnostic testing or treatment may be recommended. Payment for services provided elsewhere are to be handled by your insurance company.

Insurance companies don’t often pay 100 percent of a bill. You may be required to reach a deductible (a certain dollar amount paid out of pocket) before your insurance company will pay. The AHP deductible is $200 In Network and $400 Out of network. You may also have a copay, which is a set amount you pay out of pocket per visit. You will not be charged a copay for visiting Student Health or Counseling and Psychological Services, but you will be expected to pay a copay at a private physician’s office, walk-in clinic, urgent care or the emergency department.

If the provider (doctor’s office or hospital) is not a “preferred provider” on your plan, you may be billed for the difference between the amount that is billed and the amount your insurance company will pay. If you ensure that the provider is a “preferred provider” or “on your plan,” then you should not be billed for this difference unless you reached the insurance plans' limits in policy for services rendered. The benefit maximum for Academic Health Plans is unlimited.
