The full-time status of a student for insurance purposes is determined by the individual’s insurance company and employer, not the University. The number of credit hours differs among companies. When a student uses the community health care system, a communication is made to the University by the insurance company to verify the student status of the patient making the claim.

The insurance does not pay for pre-existing conditions until the student has been on the plan for one year. If there is a student with a chronic disease such as asthma or diabetes, a person might want to put that student on the student plan the year before they come off of the employer-based plan to have the pre-existing condition benefit coverage.
