Domestic students registered on time for five (5) or more Athens campus credit hours will automatically be enrolled and billed for a health insurance policy offered by Ohio University. Students who do not wish to purchase the policy offered by Ohio University can decline it by completing an online waiver through their My OHIO Student Center prior to the posted deadline.For additional information regarding the insurance policy, visit 
United Health Care and select Ohio University, or contact the Ohio University Student Health Insurance Administrator at studentinsurance@ohio.edu.
