Palm Beach Atlantic University is pleased to offer students an affordable student health insurance plan. All full-time day undergraduate, pharmacy, and international students are required to provide proof of current and acceptable health insurance coverage each academic year. These students are automatically enrolled and billed for the student health insurance plan. The insurance charge will only be removed if an approved waiver has been received by the deadline.
