Waive Out

Students who are residing abroad and/or have comparable health insurance will be eligible for a waiver of the GeoBlue fee. Students unsure whether they want to enroll in the university plan, or search for private insurance should review the GeoBlue Plan Brochure under Plan Details to compare coverages, exemptions and out-of-pocket maximums.

The GeoBlue waiver form is open for international students until September 15, 2023 (deadline to complete waiver). Requests for a waiver after September 15, 2023 will only be eligible for a prorated refund.

COVID-19 Testing

The GeoBlue policy covers testing when prescribed by a physician, ordered by a local authority due to contact tracing ,or after coming into contact with a positive COVID-19 person or environment. Testing must be medically necessary, performed in order to diagnose and consistent with the CDC/WHO guidance.


CGU requires all international students on F-1 and J-1 visas, whose active SEVIS record is held by CGU to enroll in the GeoBlue Accident and Sickness plan, unless eligible for a waiver. Waivers are eligible for students who have comparable insurance; or those who are residing outside of the United States.
