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 2020-2021 STUDENT HEALTH INSURANCE PLAN:

MMC students are eligible to enroll in the Empire Blue Cross Blue Shield (BCBS) plan. Empire BCBS 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 exchanges. It includes a modest deductible and co-insurance, as well as a robust nationwide network of providers. The cost is about $2,957 annually. As soon as the plan is approved (July/August), MMC will update its website with details and notify all students via email and regular mail.

 IMPORTANT:

If NO ACTION IS TAKEN, STUDENTS WILL AUTOMATICALLY BE ENROLLED IN AND CHARGED FOR THE COMPREHENSIVE INSURANCE PLAN OFFERED THROUGH EMPIRE BCBS. 

 ***The deadline to waive out is September 30, 2020.***

 

HOW TO OPT OUT*:

If you and your family feel you have adequate health insurance, you can visit www.universityhealthplans.com/mmc (after June 3, 2020)  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:

To activate your membership (once the plan is approved), please visit:   www.universityhealthplans.com/mmc.

 

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.

 

INTERNATIONAL STUDENTS:

MMC students on an F-1 Visa who are residing in the United States are required to enroll in this insurance plan. You still need to activate the insurance and download your ID card by visiting www.universityhealthplans.com/mmc  (see HOW TO ENROLL).
