Law, Vet, & Johnson Students
Students enrolled in Cornell's Vet School, Law School, and Johnson Graduate School of Management are required to have health insurance. All students are enrolled automatically in the Student Health Insurance Plan (SHIP).
The University’s policy of enrolling all students in the SHIP demonstrates its commitment to student health and well-being. The SHIP has been developed especially for Cornell students (and dependents) to provide access to convenient and efficient care that complements the quality health services offered on campus and coverage for members anywhere in the world.
If you have other health insurance that meets Cornell's requirements for adequate coverage, you can appeal your enrollment in the SHIP. If your appeal is approved, you will not be required to enroll in the SHIP. Please review carefully the benefits included in the SHIP and in any other program you might consider to decide what coverage will be best for you.
Review this information to understand what you must do to enroll in or appeal the SHIP.
