Especially for Students (Official Notices)

ALCOHOLEDU & HAVEN
The requirement for all new incoming students, AlcoholEdu & Haven, went live on Aug. 1. Students must complete both the alcohol module (AlcoholEdu) and sexual assault module (Haven) by Aug. 25 to avoid a hold on their account. To sign in, go through your PAWS account, click on the totaleiu: MyHealth tab, then click on AlcoholEdu to begin. Remember: Students must also complete Haven, which requires them to go back to PAWS and log in again after completing AlcoholEdu.

PART-TIME STUDENT INSURANCE
Student insurance provides students worldwide protection, 24 hours a day. The plan has a $50 deductible per diagnosis and pays up to 80 percent of eligible expenses for physician and hospital expenses, lab and x-ray, surgery, ambulance transport, physical therapy, maternity expenses, and mental health and substance abuse issues. Unlike an HMO or PPO, the plan does not have a network, giving students a choice in their care, and provides coverage for treatment the student receives while they are at home, at school and wherever they may travel.

When you have other insurance, the plan coordinates with the primary carrier. Student insurance is an economical way to reduce or eliminate out-of-pocket expenses when family health plans do not cover 100 percent of medical costs because of deductibles, co-payment amounts, limitations on specific benefits and out-of-network penalties. The Student Insurance Plan complements the family health plan. Most students find it beneficial to carry both, particularly if the family plan has a deductible and/or coinsurance.

Fall 2014 students who are registered for six, seven or eight on-campus hours may purchase student insurance for the semester by submitting the part-time enrollment form to the Student Insurance Office prior to 4:30 p.m on Sept. 8, 2014. The form can be downloaded from the Student Insurance website. The cost is $109.95. Students enrolled in a combination of continuing education and regular on-campus classes should contact the Student Insurance Office at 581-5290 for coverage eligibility, prior to the deadline.
