Marquette University works with an outside plan administrator to offer graduate students health insurance. Certain Marquette University graduate assistants and fellows, including some recipients of grant funding, will be eligible to a portion of the basic premium paid by Marquette University.
In 2012-13 Marquette University will contribute up to $664 towards an accident and sickness insurance plan for qualified teaching assistants, research assistants, and university fellowship recipients (U.S. citizens, and international students). Students who qualify for this benefit were notified in their award letters. The policy dates of the plan for most full-time assistants are August 1, 2012 through July 31, 2013.
Deadline for Accepting Insurance Plan
Students wishing to participate in the health insurance plan must notify the Graduate School by filling out, signing, and returning the Payroll Deduction Agreement form by July 1, 2012. See link below.
The Graduate School will work directly with the insurance company to enroll all students who accepted the insurance policy. Students will not need to fill out enrollment forms unless they wish to add dependents, spouses, or add optional major medical coverage.
Insurance cards will be mailed to students’ addresses that were listed in CheckMarq on July 1, 2012. It is important that students update their addresses after July 1, 2012 by contacting Student Assurance Services at (800) 328-2739. Temporary insurance cards will be available in the Graduate School.
