GENERAL INFORMATION

We are pleased to announce the annual statement premiums for our Student Health Insurance Program (SHIP) with United Healthcare for the upcoming 2022-2023 academic year.

Every year, the University System of Georgia works to obtain the most competitive rates and most valuable benefits for this plan. 

 

The PGH stipend that some international students received last year has expired.  No further stipends will be issued.

 

Annual premiums with semester rates and additional plan details are noted below, under question #6.

*Please note that MGA health clinics do not require or process any form of health insurance, including SHIP.

The University System of Georgia requires that some students have health insurance coverage. The Student Health Insurance Program (SHIP) was developed to provide quality health insurance to students in mandatory categories at the lowest possible costs.

If you are required to have mandatory insurance coverage, you will be notified via your MGA student email once you are registered for classes. Approximately 2 business days after you are registered, your information will be in the United Healthcare Student Resources database. You can take action through the United Healthcare Student Resources website during the enrollment period to request a waiver or accept the UHC coverage plan. You must do this in order to remain enrolled in programs that requires mandatory insurance coverage.
