Enrolling in or Waiving the Mills Student Health Plan
Summer Open Enrollment is NOW OPEN.
Open Enrollment Periods: 7/1–8/31 and 12/1–1/31
Student Responsibilities for Enrollment or Waiver
If you do not act during Open Enrollment, you will be contacted many times in an attempt to discern your preference. If you still do not respond after the close of Open Enrollment, late fees will be applied and you will be waived or enrolled based on your status for the previous term. Late changes or attempts to enroll are not automatic and will delay your coverage and care. You will incur late fees. So please complete the process during Open Enrollment.
The default plan in the online enrollment system and also charged to all student accounts is the Mills Student Health Plan (HMO). If students wish to choose the alternate plan (Mills Student Health Deductible Plan, DHMO) instead, you print out and submit an enrollment form to the Wellness Manager by mail, fax, email or in-person (Cowell Reception, email@example.com or 510.430.3235 (fax)).
Winter Open Enrollment: A second annual Open Enrollment period (12/1–1/31) is offered for new students who enter Mills in the spring or for those who wish to make changes to their enrollment. Those who enroll or waive during Winter Open Enrollment must also complete the process during Summer Open Enrollment (7/1-8/31) and once a year, every year during the Summer as long as they are students at Mills College.
How to Enroll or Waive
To enroll or waive, please read the instructions that follow. If you waive or enroll in the regular HMO plan, you will use the Student Net site to complete the enrollment or waiver electronically.

If you want to waive coverage, you will need to have all information about the alternate plan or public coverage, including the policy number, before you complete the Mills Health Plan online waiver in the Student Net.
