CU-Boulder encourages students to research various health plan options in order to make informed choices about health care. CU-Boulder has a mandatory policy that requires all students taking 1 or more credit hours to be covered by a health insurance plan. Students may elect coverage under their own insurance, through an employer, or through their parents; however, you will be automatically enrolled and billed by the university for the Student Gold Health Insurance Plan unless you select the Wardenburg Campus Care Plan or waive coverage by the semester deadline.
