The law requires all University of the District of Columbia (UDC) students to have health insurance. UDC has contracted with the Maksin Group, now called CHARTIS, to administer the University’s student health insurance plan. CHARTIS is the largest student-based independent third-party administrator in the nation.
Students are automatically enrolled in the University's basic student health insurance plan when registering.

You may log onto www.studentinsurance.com/Schools/DC/UDC
to request a waiver (see details below); purchase additional coverage for yourself or your dependents; print a temporary health insurance ID card; and print a health plan brochure. CHARTIS will mail permanent health insurance cards to your home address.
NOTE: Law students should use their myUDC IDs (starts with "N") as their CHARTIS Student IDs.
Health Insurance Waiver
If you are currently insured under a comparable or better health insurance policy, you may waive out
of the university's student health insurance plan with proof of another approved plan. To request a waiver from the University-sponsored plan for 2012-2013, go to www.studentinsurance.com/Schools/DC/UDC
and complete the online waiver form by September 11, 2012
. Use your myUDC ID (which starts with N) as the student ID requested on the waiver form. CHARTIS will notify the University if your waiver application is approved in which case the law school will remove the charge from your bill and initiate the refund process.
Loss of Coverage After Receiving a Waiver
A student who initially waived university-sponsored coverage, but subsequently loses coverage under of the qualifying events below, may elect to enroll in the university-sponsored plan within 31 days of the qualifying event.
The student must fill out the Qualifying Event form (pdf)
and mail it directly to CHARTIS. CHARTIS will bill the student directly and notify the university of the enrollment.
- Adding a new Spouse or Dependent Child (may enroll within 31 days of marriage, birth, or adoption); or
- Entering as a new or transfer student (may enroll within 31 days of registration); or
- Ineligibility under another creditable plan and exhaustion of all available COBRA or Continuation coverage.
