Health insurance policies must meet minimum standards set forth by the Student Government Association and the Office of the Senior Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs and Provost.
- Policy must have no major exclusions. Plan must include: major medical, pharmacy, emergency medical, diagnostic x-rays/laboratory services, and mental health and preventative care.
- Insurance verification is required each semester. Health insurance coverage is required for the entire semester for which a student is enrolled. False documentation/verification may result in disciplinary action up to and including dismissal by the college.
- Individual plans must have a policy year deductible of $1,000 or less; family and employer plans are exempt from this requirement. Verification must include accurate information allowing student insurance monitors to confirm eligibility.
- Plan documents must be in English and an insurance company contact phone number in the U.S. must be provided.
Pending policies do not meet the student insurance verification requirement and are not accepted as coverage. Student health insurance is included in student loan amounts and students are required to comply with coverage and standards outlined above.
