ABOUT THE INSURANCE PLAN
To make sure that SVA students have access to quality health care services, they are automatically enrolled in the SVA-sponsored Student Health Insurance Plan and billed $2,760 ($1,380 per semester) by Student Accounts. The annual coverage period is August 25, 2020 - August 24, 2021. Students enrolled for the spring coverage period only (January 1, 2021 - August 24, 2021) are billed $1,775.
Here are some highlights of the SVA-sponsored student health insurance:
ONLINE HEALTH INSURANCE WAIVER
Students covered under a health insurance plan that meets SVA’s waiver requirements may submit an online waiver no later than November 1, 2020 for fall 2020 or February 8, 2021 for spring 2021 in interest of removing the health insurance fee from their tuition bill. Please note: the insurance fee cannot be removed by speaking with or calling SVA administrative staff.
Important notice for students attending Online-only classes:
There will be an exception to the waiver process. If you do not wish to have the SVA sponsored insurance plan because you will be insured in your home country/state (outside of the New York City area), you will have the opportunity to waive out of the SVA sponsored insurance plan (please log into the Waiver Form to find out how).

If you have a life changing event (i.e. involuntary loss of coverage) and need to re-enroll in the insurance plan after submitting a waiver, please contact University Health Plans at firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss re-enrollment.
