Alumni & Other Health Insurance Options
United Health will not insure any alumni who are no longer enrolled in classes at Saint Mary's. If you have graduated and wish to continue coverage with United Health, you will need to contact them directly to inquire about their individual insurance policies. Alumni are also eligible to enroll in an insurance policy offered by their employer. Otherwise, alumni can choose to purchase health insurance through any provider that has a policy to fit their needs.
