  • Student Health Insurance

  • While studying at Hawai‘i Pacific University (HPU), students need to protect their health and financial stability by having adequate health coverage to address minor and major illnesses that may arise, and to avoid unexpected interruption of their education by high medical expenses. We strongly urge all HPU students to have medical insurance.  If you are a student from the U.S. mainland, contact your insurance carrier regarding the scope of coverage in Hawaii.  

    We are pleased to offer Kaiser medical insurance plans. The Kaiser Plan is an HMO plan that makes it easy for HPU students to get their medical services at convenient Kaiser locations statewide--11 locations on Oahu, five on Maui, and three on the Big Island of Hawaii. Students can choose or change their Primary Care Physician (PCP) at any time and are welcome to make same-day appointments at any Kaiser Clinic. The Honolulu Clinic (1010 Pensacola Street) is conveniently located within 15 minutes of the HPU downtown campus. Access to the parking structure, as well as the building, is available on both King and Pensacola Streets. In addition, the clinic is situated directly along city bus routes both to and from the downtown campus. Bus directions from the HPU downtown campus: on Hotel Street (east-bound), take Bus #1 (all routes), #2, #13 to the Honolulu Clinic. Get off at King Street, just before Pensacola; the clinic is across the street. Call The Bus at (808) 848-5555 for schedule information. For more information, go to the online director of Kaiser locations, physicians, or services at

        Attention International Students

  • Currently, international students are required to have health insurance as a condition of enrollment at the University. HPU recommends that students purchase one of the HPU student plans. If a student provides adequate proof of coverage by completing the International Student Health Insurance Waiver, purchase of an HPU plan is not necessary. Effective fall 2014 semester, all international students will be automatically enrolled in an HPU medical plan. Students may continue to waive participation in the HPU plan by completing the International Student Health Insurance Waiver (refer to the fall 2014 waiver). This waiver verifies that students have health insurance and comparable coverage through another insurance plan.

  • To waive participation in the HPU plan, the waiver must be submitted to the Dean of Students Office (MP 107 or by 5pm on September 12, 2014 (fall semester), January 30, 2015 (spring semester) or May 29, 2015 (summer term) to receive clearance for the health insurance requirement and fee. If students do not submit a waiver, they will be responsible for paying approximately $1,200 USD (based on 2013-2014 Kaiser rates; rate subject to change) for health insurance. Details about upcoming 2014-2015 health plans will be available summer 2014.

    Full-time, degree seeking students who submit a waiver for the fall semester will automatically waive insurance for the spring semester (and summer term if taking classes) as long as the waiver shows coverage during those enrolled terms. Visiting students will only be automatically enrolled during the term they are taking classes. Once students are enrolled, the health insurance coverage cannot be cancelled. Please note that the revised policy still mandates all international students to have health coverage as a condition of enrollment. For more information about HPU’s student health insurance plan, please call the Dean of Students Office at (808) 544-1116.

    If you wish to obtain a waiver, your medical insurance must meet the following requirements: 

  • Valid coverage dates for the entire term
  • Coverage for outpatient care, hospitalization, emergency room, accidents, medical and surgery in Hawaii
  • Comprehensive medical coverage of at least $100,000 USD coverage per accident or illness
  • At least $7,500 USD coverage for repatriation
  • At least $10,000 USD to cover expenses associated with the medical evacuation to one's home country
  • A deductible not to exceed $500 USD per accident or illness
  • At least 75% coverage for each accident or illness
  • After the deductible, insurance company must pay medical expenses directly to the medicla provider
  • Health plan does not have a pre-existing clause and waiting period of any kind
  • The health insurance plan inlcudes behavioral health coverage
  • The health insurance plan is backed up by a provider that meets a set rating
  • Plans that are NOT accepted include:

  • Life insurance policies
  • Travel insurance plans
  • Accident or hospitalization only plans
  • Reimbursement policies

  • To obtain a waiver for spring 2014 semester and summer 2014 term, international students must submit proof of medical coverage by submitting the International Student Health Waiver. Please take care of this BEFORE the semester/term begins.  Questions can be directed to the Admissions Office (1164 Bishop Street, 11th floor).
