All students taking over eight (8) credit hours per semester must have health insurance. Reimbursements for medical expenses may be submitted to cover certain costs associated with medical, dental, eye exams, or certain emergency procedures AFTER your insurance company has made their adjustments and you have made the required payment to your healthcare provider.
Reimbursements for health related charges will be considered when complete and current documentation has been received showing paid charges. All documentation should detail who is covered/the patient, the date of service and service/procedure description. Please be sure to itemize all dates and procedures on page 2 of the request form. If you need additional space for itemization, please submit on a separate sheet of paper or Excel spreadsheet.
All health related insurance and expense adjustments and/or reimbursements cover the nine (9) months of the academic school year, not 12 months. Weekly expenses are adjusted at 32 weeks for the academic school year and 9 weeks for the summer session (when enrolled).
- Reimbursements for health insurance coverage will be considered when complete and current documentation has been received showing charge above what is allotted in the student budget for health insurance.
- Please submit your health insurance coverage statement for all non-Georgetown health insurance along with one copy of your most recent proof of payment. The document should detail who is covered, the monthly amount and dates of coverage.
- For Georgetown health or dental insurance covering more than the student, simply submit your Georgetown insurance coverage statement.
- Documentation is not needed for student-only Georgetown dental insurance. Simply state that you have Georgetown dental insurance on page 2 of the request form.
- For any ongoing medical appointments, procedures, treatment or prescriptions, you should provide a current cost and course of treatment document from your healthcare provider as well as the most recent proof of payment document/receipt.
- One-time procedures, surgeries or appointments must follow all reimbursement guidelines above. Please provide the final statement AND receipt. The document should detail who is covered or the patient, the date of service and service/procedure description.
Cosmetic, spa or pet medical expenses are NOT eligible for reimbursement.
