Anna Maria College
STUDENT HEALTH INSURANCE PLAN
2016-2017 Policy Year
Anna Maria College is pleased to announce that for the 2016-2017 Academic Year we have teamed up with Blue Cross and Blue Shield (BCBS) to provide health insurance coverage for our students. Details about the Student Health Insurance Plan can be found by selecting Benefit Information in the left navigation menu.
Since September of 1989, Massachusetts Law, G.L. c. 15A, § 18, has required every college student participating in at least 75% of the full-time curriculum to participate in a Student Health Insurance Program or in a health benefit plan with comparable coverage. Therefore, all students enrolled in at least 75% of the full-time curriculum are automatically charged the Student Health Insurance Fee. If the student is already enrolled in a comparable health insurance plan, then the student must fill out an online waiver form. The online waiver form can be accessed by selecting waiver form in the left navigation menu. If you do not submit an online waiver form by the deadline below, you will automatically be enrolled in the College's Student Health Insurance Plan and responsible for the fee.
The Annual Undergraduate Student Health Insurance Fee is $1,504 and will be charged on the fall tuition bill. Annual coverage is effective 8/10/16-8/9/17. The deadline to waive the Annual Student Health Insurance Plan is September 2, 2016.
Students entering the College in the Spring Semester must meet the insurance requirement as well. The Spring Undergraduate Student Health Insurance Fee is $900 and will be charged on the spring tuition bill for NEW Spring Semester students. Spring coverage is effective 1/10/17-8/9/17. The deadline to waive for the Spring Student Health Insurance Plan is January 23, 2017.
Graduate and C.E. Students
Graduate and Continuing Education students participating in at least 75% of the full-time curriculum may opt to enroll in the Student Health Insurance Plan. Graduate and Continuing Educations students are not automatically billed and enrolled in the Student Health Insurance Plan. Students must enroll by selecting the Graduate/C.E. Enrollment Form in the left navigation menu. After enrollment is successfully submitted the Student Health Insurance Fee will be added to the student account. The full cost is billed in the fall semester and due in full at time of enrollment. Enrollment will be verified to confirm the student is participating in at least 75% of the full-time curriculum.
The Annual Graduate Student Health Insurance Fee is $1,818, for coverage effective 8/10/16-8/9/17. The deadline to enroll in the Annual Graduate Student Health Insurance Plan is August 24, 2016.
NEW Spring Graduate Students also have an opportunity to enroll. The Spring Graduate Student Health Insurance Fee is $1,084, for coverage effective 1/10/17-8/9/17. The deadline to enroll in the Spring Graduate Health Insurance Plan is January 27, 2017.
Student Health Insurance Plan ID cards will be sent to Anna Maria College and distributed to Students on move in day.
