Resources & Info


Belmont University does not offer undergraduate insurance, but does offer a graduate student health insurance plan. All full time Graduate students will be required to have comprehensive healthcare coverage during their matriculation at Belmont University.

All Graduate Students taking 6 or more credit hours will be enrolled in the student insurance; you will see the annual premium amount of $2483 on your student account. If you already have insurance it is easy to have that amount removed from your student account. You will need to provide proof of coverage and the insurance amount will be removed.

Please be sure to follow these steps to confirm your enrollment on the plan or to waive the plan with proof of other coverage.

  1. Go to between the dates of August 1 – September 13, 2019.
  2. Click the link to either “Enroll Now” or “Waive Coverage.”
  3. The “Enroll Now” link confirms that you want to remain enrolled in the student insurance and the premium will stay on your student account.
  4. The “Waive Coverage” link will require that you answer a few questions and upload the front and back of your insurance card. If your waiver is approved, the premium will be removed from your bill. If the waiver is denied, the charge will remain on your account.
  5. If you take no action you will be enrolled in the health insurance and the charge will remain on your student account.

The plan provides nationwide coverage under the UnitedHealthcare Options PPO. The in-network deductible is just $300, physician visits are covered at 100% after a $20 copay, and Rx copays are $15 for Tier 1, $35 for Tier 2, $65 for Tier 3. Additionally you will have access to telehealth services for both medical and behavioral health at no cost.

We are excited about this opportunity for our graduate students who do not have health insurance. All of the plan information will be available at If you have questions about the benefits you can contact Karen Lesch (727-563-3453, or Melissa Malone (727-563-3415, at UnitedHealthcare Student Resources.

Tobacco-Free Resources

Read Belmont's Tobacco Free Policy. There are several therapies available that can help break the physical and/or mental addiction of tobacco. All of these are intended to use for the 3-4 months required to change addictive behavior.  Some of them actually contain nicotine and may involve a mild withdrawal process of their own. Here are some helpful reference sites. You can start by viewing the American Cancer Society's Guide to Quitting Smoking.
