IMPORTANT INSURANCE INFORMATION
All full-time (12 or more credits) Marymount Manhattan College (MMC) students are required to have adequate health insurance to cover them for sickness or injury EACH YEAR they are enrolled in school.
ABOUT THE PLAN
MMC students are eligible to enroll in the United Healthcare Student Resource plan. United Healthcare is awaiting final approval of the plan and rates from the New York State Department of Financial Services. The plan is the equivalent of a “platinum” plan on the federal healthcare exchange. It includes a modest deductible and co-insurance, as well as a robust nationwide network of providers. The cost is about $2,353 annually. As soon as the plan is approved, MMC will update its website with details and notify all students via MMC email and regular mail.
You may examine the full details of the plan under the Certificates tab on the navigation panel on the insurance website.
If you do not want to keep to keep this insurance plan, and you can show you have adequate alternative coverage, you may submit an ONLINE WAIVER APPLICATION. Once your waiver is approved, the charge will be dropped from your MMC account.
The waiver opens Monday, June 03, 2019.
The deadline to waive out is September 30, 2019.
IMPORTANT: If NO ACTION is taken, students will automatically be enrolled in and charged for the comprehensive insurance plan offered through United Healthcare.
HOW TO OPT OUT*:
If you and your family feel you have adequate health insurance, you can visit www.firststudent.com (after June 3, 2019*) to opt out of MMC’s insurance plan.
Once you are logged on, please follow the prompts to waive MMC’s insurance. You will need:
- Your student ID number
- Your valid health insurance card
Once you receive verification that your waiver is approved, the charge for health insurance will be removed from your MMC bill.
HOW TO ENROLL:
As soon as New York State approves the plan (late July/early August), MMC will communicate with you via your MMC email and by mail. At that time, you will be able to review the plan details.
To activate your membership:
Visit www.firststudent.com and follow the prompts.
I ALREADY WAIVED INSURANCE LAST YEAR. DO I NEED TO OPT OUT AGAIN?
Yes. We are required to collect insurance information from all students EVERY academic year. So, all returning students must opt out of the insurance plan EACH YEAR, otherwise you will be charged for the insurance.
MMC students on an F-1 Visa are required to enroll in this insurance plan. You still need to activate the insurance and download your ID card by visiting www.firststudent.com (see HOW TO ENROLL)
