Medical Record Requirement
All incoming students are required to submit a Medical Record Form to Bucknell Student Health prior to arrival on campus. A physical exam is part of the requirement, so please schedule one with a health practitioner as soon as possible to ensure your form is completed and sent to Bucknell Student Health on time. The deadlines for submitting the record form are:
Fall semester deadline: June 15
Spring semester deadline: Jan. 3

All full-time undergraduate students (taking three or more classes) and all full-time graduate students (those in a degree-seeking program and taking two or more courses per semester) attending Bucknell must enroll in or waive the health insurance coverage offered through the University each year. Students who waive coverage of the sponsored plan must provide verifiable proof of comparable coverage. Students are required to complete the waiver or enrollment each year.
If you do not complete the online waiver form by the submission deadline, you will be automatically enrolled in the University-sponsored plan. Your Bucknell student account will be automatically billed and you will be responsible for payment to the University. Once you are enrolled, the plan cannot be canceled, and no refunds are available. Parents or guardians may waive or enroll on their student's behalf.

Questions About Coverage
Health insurance coverage can be very confusing and sometimes expensive. Please note that insurance plans utilizing the United Healthcare network, Oxford and many others are not accepted within our local hospital systems. Student Health is available to answer questions about where your insurance may be accepted locally. Please contact the student insurance liaison at firstname.lastname@example.org or 570-577-1159.
