  • Access to CIGNA’s nationwide provider network (PPO)
  • 90% coverage for in network providers (Cigna) / 60% coverage for out of network providers
  • Prescription drug & mental health coverage

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 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 for the Fall 2020 semester. 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 Fall semester’s SVA sponsored insurance plan (please log into the Waiver Form to find out how).
