Do we have to pay for the Duke Health Insurance if we have our own?

If you have your own health insurance, you must request a waiver of Duke’s insurance by providing proof that your child is already covered.  This waiver process will be available through the student's DukeHub portal. Once the waiver is granted, any charge for Duke’s insurance on the student account will be removed. You can also contact the health insurance manager with any questions about waiving Duke’s health insurance. Click here for instructions on how to complete the health insurance process.

Please note: international students do not have the option to waive Duke’s insurance. All international students are automatically signed up for Duke’s health insurance.
