2017-2018 STUDENT HEALTH 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 $2,140 ($1,070 per semester) by Student Accounts. The annual coverage period is August 25, 2017 - August 24, 2018. Students enrolled for the spring coverage period only (January 6, 2018 - August 24, 2018) are billed $1,346.

Here are some highlights of the SVA-sponsored student health insurance:

  • 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
  • Inpatient hospitalization coverage
  • Travel assistance services

REMOVING THE INSURANCE PLAN & FEE

Students who have comparable coverage and do not want to remain enrolled in the SVA-sponsored Student Health Insurance Plan must provide information about their insurance coverage each year by completing the Online Waiver Form. The deadline for fall 2017 is October 2, 2017. If you do not complete a waiver form by the deadline date, you will be responsible for the Health Insurance Fee. Waiving for fall 2017 automatically removes the fee for spring 2018. Click here to access the Online Waiver Form.

STUDENT INSURANCE RE-ENROLLMENT

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 health@sva.edu to request a Re-Enrollment Form.

If you need assistance while navigating this system, please contact our broker, University Health Plans, Inc., at 800-437-6448.
