Mandatory Health Insurance Plan

All registered students and dependents at the Auburn University are required to meet the university’s health insurance mandate. Registered Auburn University undergraduate and graduate students are automatically enrolled in the Auburn University Student Health Insurance Plan(SHIP) as a way to meet this mandate.

Auburn University SHIP is a medical insurance plan, providing medical, counseling, and prescription services. Learn about how to use SHIP here (including claims and billing). Remember, all students can use the AUMC, whether you waive SHIP or not.

The Health Insurance Plan is offered by United Healthcare. This plan is designed to be used in conjunction with the services of the Auburn University Medical Clinic. To obtain greatest benefits, you will need to utilize the Student Health Service first, where treatment will be administered or referral issued, except in the case of medical emergency, maternity, when away from campus or when the Student Health Service is closed.

The Auburn University Insurance Office can assist students and scholars with important services and information related to their health care plan, including:

  • billing questions
  • policy questions
  • claim assistance
  • adding dependents
  • insurance card distribution
