This email is specifically for those who are responsible for graduate students enrolled in the Graduate Student Health Insurance Program (GSHIP). A few reminders for the coming semester:
- Students who are graduating, withdrawing, or no longer working need to be entered into the system before December 20th. Please email me once you are finished updating the student’s status.
- If you have RAs or TAs who were just hired, be sure to submit their GSHIP paperwork by December 20th so that a policy ID number can be issued to them prior to the January 1, 2015, policy effective date.
- These new RAs/TAs will have to use that policy ID to waive out of the UNC System Student Health Insurance Plan (Student Blue) at https://www.bcbsnc.com/content/studentblue/uncch/index.htm.
- Spouse and dependent coverage is available on the GSHIP plan, and can be completed directly with Blue Cross/Blue Shield at 1-800-579-8022.
Please contact me at 919-962-7793 or firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions.
Thank you for your prompt attention to this matter.
