The Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Montana health policy is offered through the University of Montana Western and the premium for this policy will be automatically assessed to students. The premiums are paid on a semester basis along with tuition and fees. Students taking the insurance for spring semester will automatically be covered during the summer, even if they are not enrolled for classes in summer semester. If you have other health insurance, students may waive the student health insurance, but must do so by the 15 day of classes or the premium will be charged to the student's account.

Health Insurance is automatically charged to the student’s account after registering for seven credits or more.
Students can opt out of the plan if appropriate evidence of personal insurance is provided before the 15 day of the semester. Prior to the end of the first week of school, students may waive the insurance charge online via the Registration/Finalization process. After this, a student must provide documentation to the Dean of Students.
After the final day of the semester, health insurance will not be refunded even with the appropriate evidence.
