Short-term health insurance available

ALUMNI | In between jobs, starting a new career or any other major life event, including post-graduation life—there are many times Blue Hens could be temporarily without health insurance coverage.

Now, the University of Delaware Alumni Association (UDAA) has partnered with GradMed® Short Term Medical to offer major-medical coverage to all alumni. As one of the UDAA’s sponsored benefits, GradMed is designed to provide affordable, short-term health insurance that helps fill the gap between periods of long-term coverage.


Both accidents and illnesses are covered by GradMed, but pre-existing conditions are excluded. Other benefits, such as dependent coverage, vary by state. For complete details about GradMed or to apply for next-day coverage, visit www.GradMed.com/delaware.

Alumni who have taken advantage of this benefit say GradMed can be a perfect solution for a temporary problem.

UD’s account manager at GradMed says the benefit already is proving popular with University alumni in a variety of situations that have left them temporarily lacking other health insurance.

GradMed is underwritten and issued by Fidelity Security Life Insurance Co. or Time Insurance Co. For information on this and other services offered to UD alumni, visit
