Thank you for submitting your Fall 2023 health insurance information in the Academic Health Plans online portal! For the upcoming Spring 2024 semester, we will please repeat this process again in the AHP system starting on November 2nd. You have the option to (1) enroll in the Spring 2024 Aetna plan or (2) waive coverage with your personal health insurance plan.

  2. Waive: If submitting an electronic waiver, the AHP team will be validating that your health insurance plan benefits are meeting the requirements each semester ( This electronic auditing process is for your benefit and ensures that you can get access to any needed healthcare services. You are required to upload a health insurance ID card, dates of active coverage, and documentation of plan benefits. You do not need to upload the UNF compliance form. If your waiver is denied, you will need to obtain a different personal health insurance plan that meets the requirements or opt to enroll in the Aetna plan.

Lessons learned from the Fall 2023 waiver process:

Most common reasons for a denied waiver:

  • Failure to provide document(s) with plan benefits. This is needed in addition to your health insurance ID card.
  • Policy documents not in English.
  • Policy documents not in US dollars.

The AHP online portal to enroll/waive will open on 11/02/2023. Please mark this date on your calendar.

SPRING 2024: 01/08/2024-05/12/2024 (health insurance coverage dates needed for Spring 2024)
