This form is designed to assist students in complying with the Virginia Commonwealth University School of Medicine policy, which mandates that all medical students shall have and maintain health insurance coverage. The policy sets forth the minimum insurance requirements for all enrolled medical students. Students must verify that the basic benefits outlined in the form are included in their health insurance policy and provide documentation that their policy provides those benefits necessary to meet the established requirements. If any of these benefits are not covered, a hold will be placed on the student’s account (registration) until proof of sufficient coverage is received in this office. This hold means that you cannot attend classes or participate in clinical activities, and you will not be eligible to receive financial aid. This form should be submitted by July 19th, 2020. Please allow at least 4-8 weeks processing time to confirm receipt.
