  • Add/Enroll
    • QLE: Involuntary loss of coverage (e.g. aging off of a parent's plan)
  • Drop
    • QLE: Gaining coverage under another plan, leaving the US
  • Add Dependents
    • QLE: Marriage, birth or adoption, arrival of family members to the US
  • Drop Dependents
    • QLE: Divorce, death, departure of family members to the US

Required documentation includes proof of event and proof of dependent
relationship. Examples: Proof of loss/gain of coverage, proof of arrival/departure of family members to the US, marriage certificate or divorce decree, birth/naturalization/adoption

The Spring/Summer waiver deadline ended 02/01/2021. The online waiver system can no longer accept new waiver requests.

Online-only International Students

International students who are not living in the United States while taking classes should sign into the Patient Portal, click on the forms tab on the right hand side of the screen and choose the “Notice of International Student Insurance Waiver” option. On that page, you will be able to attest that you are not living in the United States while taking classes by clicking the box at the bottom of the page and clicking the blue "Submit Final" button.


Continuation coverage is for those students who are no longer eligible for student insurance because they have graduated or are no longer taking classes. To be eligible for continuation Coverage, you must have been insured for at least 3 continuous months on the Purdue Student Health Insurance Plan, and you must submit premium within 30 days after your existing coverage terminates.

Find a Doctor or Dentist

Use Anthem's online Find a Doctor tool to look for doctors, dentists, hospitals, labs, and other health care providers in your Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield plan. Check if the provider you intend to see is part of your plan (in network), or look for one near you. Avoid getting care from doctors outside of your plan (out of network) if you can - it will cost you more or your plan may not cover it all.
