Heathcare in the United States is expensive. The university wants to make sure its students are protected from unexpected financial hardship when medical needs arise. Full-time, matriculating students studying on CMU's Pittsburgh and New York campus locations, or within most of its Silicon Valley programs, must meet medical insurance requirements. They are automatically charged for the Individual level medical insurance plan in their first semester of attendance each academic year.
They may modify that enrollment, or, if they have alternative insurance, request a removal of this charge by submitting a waiver form.
