ALL STUDENTS ARE CHARGED FOR THE SHIP, BUT THOSE STUDENTS WITH APPROVED WAIVERS WILL ALSO SEE THE WAIVER CREDIT.
Students wishing to enroll in the SHIP are encouraged to actively enroll. Enrollment begins July 15, 2023 for coverage beginning August 1, 2023.
STUDENTS WHO NEITHER WAIVE NOR ENROLL IN THE SHIP WILL BE “PASSIVELY” ENROLLED IN THE SHIP. THIS WILL NOT BE COMPLETED UNTIL AFTER CENSUS DAY.
If you would like to waive the Student Health Insurance Plan (SHIP), you must go online to: https://csm.myahpcare.com/ and complete the online waiver by Census Day, September 6, 2023.
Late waivers are accepted until October 6, and are subject to a $125 late fee. You will need to provide valid proof of health insurance coverage to waive SHIP.
If AHP is unable to verify active coverage or a student waives outside the open enrollment/waiver period, a student waiving with Colorado Medicaid may also need to submit a screenshot of their Summary of Benefits showing active coverage and a renewal date.
Health Insurance Requirement
The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act includes a requirement that many people have health insurance or pay a penalty. Compliance with this mandate is administered by the Internal Revenue Service (IRS)*. The IRS requires health insurance companies to report the individuals they covered per tax year. The reports need to include Social Security Numbers (SSN) or International Tax Identification Numbers (ITIN) to distinguish unique individuals. Insurance companies are also required to give individuals a copy of what they have reported, in the form of a tax form called the 1095-B.
