Health Insurance

Johns Hopkins University's policy states all students must maintain adequate health insurance coverage. School of Nursing students may purchase insurance through the Student Health Program (SHP) or provide their own comparable health insurance coverage. Students maintaining their own insurance plan should complete an annual waiver. Online waiver form

New Students

SHP enrollment forms are mailed to all new students 30 days prior to their first semester

DENTAL INSURANCE is not covered by SHP and is non-compulsory to students. United Concordia is the School of Nursing, student dental plan, with open enrollment periods in June or September. Dental insurance is nonrefundable. Contact Student Accounts to enroll.

Returning Students

For students already enrolled in SHP, coverage carries over to the next academic year and premiums are charged to their ISIS student account. SHP coverage ends once a student stops attending school. Students may extend coverage be electing COBRA. Additional information will be communicated before graduation. Learn More About COBRA
