Marymount Manhattan College
STUDENT HEALTH INSURANCE PLAN

2020-2021 Academic Year

 

Marymount Manhattan College (MMC) requires all students enrolled for 12 or more credits to have comprehensive health insurance that will cover them for sickness or injury they may suffer while they are attending school in New York City.

Plan Highlights

The 2020-2021 MMC Student Health Insurance Plan (SHIP) is provided by Empire Blue Cross Blue Shield (BCBS). The plan is ACA compliant and includes access to Blue Cross Blue Shield's national PPO network of providers. Students do not have to select a primary care physician and referrals are not required. 

MMC has partnered with University Health Plans to administer the plan and help with waiver, enrollment, or benefit-related questions. University Health Plans can be reached at 800-437-6448 or info@univhealthplans.com.

Waiver Process

If you are covered by a comprehensive health insurance plan you can opt-out of the MMC SHIP by completing the waiver form, located in the left hand side navigation menu. Before waiving, compare the cost, coverage, and benefits of the SHIP to your existing plan. Please consider the following:

  • Your plan must provide access to in-network doctors, hospitals, labs, pharmacies, and behavioral health providers in the MMC campus area. 
  • Out of state Medicaid and many HMO or EPO plans do not provide out-of-network coverage. Emergency only coverage does not meet the SHIP requirements.

If you do not submit a waiver form by the waiver deadline above, you will be enrolled in SHIP and responsible for the premium. 

International Students

International students attending MMC on an F-1 Visa who are risiding in the United States are required to maintain this the MMC SHIP. You can access your health insurance ID card in the left hand side navigation menu.

Qualifying Event Enrollment Process

Students who waived the SHIP may qualify for special enrollment rights if they incur an involuntary loss of other coverage. To request an enrollment form and premium quote, contact University Health Plans at 800-437-6448 or info@univhealthplans.com.

To enroll, you must submit an enrollment form, letter from your prior insurance company documenting your loss of coverage and payment within 30 days of the qualifying event. If all three items are received by the deadline coverage will be effective as of the first day without coverage under your prior plan.
