Health Information & Services
At Rockhurst, we are committed to our students’ well-being, both in and out of the classroom. With that well-being in mind, Rockhurst has established a collaborative relationship with Neighborhood Walk-In and Family Care located in the North Parking Garage on the Rockhurst campus and Goppert Trinity Family Care (Goppert), located south of the University at 6675 Holmes St., third floor to provide for students’ acute and preventative health care needs. For students enrolled in the Rockhurst student health insurance plan, most services received at Neighborhood Walk-In and Family Care and Goppert are covered by the plan and paid at 100 percent with no deductible or co-payment required.
The waiver site is currently closed for students who want to waive the health insurance for the fall semester. The site will reopen in mid-November to waive coverage for the spring/summer term. Waiving the insurance for the fall 2016 ensures you have waived it for the entire 2016-17 academic year.
Rockhurst University has negotiated an affordable and comprehensive health care plan for our students and their dependents. We will be partnering with Blue Cross Blue Shield of Kansas City as our insurance carrier for the upcoming academic year. Full-time undergraduate (12 hours or more) or full-time graduate (9 hours or more) students are automatically enrolled in this program unless they waive the requirement through our web-based enrollment/waiver system by the established deadline of September 2, 2016, for the fall semester and January 20, 2017, for the spring/summer. Part-time, accelerated option, Executive MBA, DO/MBA, MBA/PHY, post-baccalaureate and other students may voluntarily enroll in the program. Dependents of full-time students may also be eligible for enrollment in the plan. For further information, please visit Student Insurance.
