The mandatory health fee provides for insurance coverage should a student be injured during a supervised, on-campus or school-related activity. Campus insurance provides physician care for class related injuries. Please report all accidents to the Health Center to receive first aid care and access insurance coverage.
A $50 deductible will apply to each student claim filed and a $100 deductible will apply to each athletic claim filed.
This student insurance is secondary to any group, blanket franchise, group practice, individual practice or other pre-payment coverages which means the claim must be filed with primary insurance first.
