All of these requirements are met by the CSU-sponsored policy with Blue Cross, through Wells Fargo Student Insurance Division. You may purchase their policy at their web site.
Wells Fargo Student Insurance Division will automatically notify the SFSU Registrar to release the insurance hold upon purchase.
If you elect not to purchase the CSU-sponsored policy through Wells Fargo Student Insurance Division, please review these requirements carefully with your insurance provider.
The Registrar needs your insurance company to provide you with a written confirmation or affadavit that the policy meets all of the requirements listed above.
You are advised to ask your insurance company or broker offering to provide you with health insurance to give you written confirmation or an affadavit on their official letterhead that their policy meets all of the requirements listed above before you purchase it.
If the insurance company or broker does not provide you with written confirmation or an affadavit you may be wasting your money on a policy that is noncompliant.
Affadavit - A written declaration made under oath before an authorized notary or officeholder.
Letterhead - a sheet of stationery with name and address of the organization printed at the top.
