Mandatory Insurance/Waivers All mandatory students are required to have major medical insurance. These students will automatically be billed for VIVA Student Health Insurance via their student accounts.
Students who already have their own personal insurance coverage have the option to waive the VIVA Student coverage. The student must sign a waiver stating that he/she has major medical insurance that is comparable or superior to the Viva plan. The major medical insurance coverage must meet the following minimum standards:
Physician and hospital coverage with providers in Alabama Minimum of $500,000 lifetime maximum benefit Transplant Coverage Students will need to provide the insurance company name and policy number for verification. Students may sign the waiver online at the link below. (Students entering in the summer semester should check the box for the fall semester. All medical students should check the box for School of Medicine First Half.)
