Policy Statement
Robert Morris University is committed to offering a student health insurance policy that balances the cost of the premium with quality health insurance coverage to meet the needs of our students. In order to achieve an affordable option, RMU has a mandatory hard waiver policy for select groups of students.

Participation Requirements
The University requires that all traditional undergraduate students, both full-time and part-time, carry health insurance. Additionally, graduate students in the following groups will be required to carry comparable health insurance coverage or buy coverage from RMU's provider:
  1. Resident Students
  2. International Students
  3. Club Sport Participants
  4. Nursing and Nuclear Medicine Students
  5. Intercollegiate Athletes
Cross registered students are not permitted to participate in the RMU health insurance plan.

If you have UPMC Insurance coverage, you can print your insurance card from the UPMC website.

Waiver Information
Students should verify that their insurance plan meets the minimum requirements set forth below:
  1. Hospital Coverage
  2. Ambulance Coverage
  3. Emergency Room Services
  4. Policy Maximum of $100,000
  5. Pre-existing condition coverage
