Waiver Requirements

  2. I confirm that I have a current health insurance plan that includes coverage for:

    • Office visits
    • Prescription drugs
    • Immunizations
    • Routine physical exams
    • Hospitalization, and emergency services.
    • Injuries (resulting from accidents)
    • Inpatient and Outpatient Mental/Behavioral Health Care
       
  3. My current health insurance plan is not a short-term limited duration travel plan only.

  4. My current health insurance plan offers an unlimited maximum benefit for coverage of necessary medical expenses each policy year.
     
  5. My current health insurance plan includes a nationwide network of Preferred Providers, guaranteeing acceptance of my insurance plan, especially within the New York City area.
     
  6. My current health insurance plan provides coverage anywhere in the world, including medical evacuation, repatriation, and travel assistance services while I am away from campus for academics, research, work, or vacation.
     
  7. My current health insurance plan does not limit my coverage to emergency conditions only while in the area of the School of Visual Arts campus, but provides all of the coverage described in #2 above while in the area of the School of Visual Arts campus.
