Qualifying Event

Students who waive the Plan for a given semester are eligible to apply for coverage during that semester if they experience a qualifying event. A qualifying event is defined as follows:

  • Reaching the age limit of another health insurance plan;
  • Loss of health insurance through a marriage or divorce;
  • Involuntary loss of coverage from another health insurance plan.

Students must apply for coverage with the Case Western Reserve University Student Medical Plan within 31 days of loss of coverage from their current medical insurance.
