Important Student Health Insurance Update
Please be advised that due to insufficient enrollment, CUNY's student
health insurance program with United Healthcare will not be offered in
the 2014-15 academic year. Students currently enrolled in the United
Healthcare plan can maintain their insurance through August of 2014. To
avoid a lapse in coverage, please visit the NY State of Health website
before August, or speak with a navigator or in-person assistor on your
campus. Please note the discontinuation of the student health insurance
plan is considered a qualifying event that will allow currently enrolled
students to purchase insurance within 60 days of losing coverage.
For questions please email Patti Lamberson at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Affordable Care Act
The Affordable Care Act (ACA) is a new federal law that requires all individuals to
have health insurance by January 1, 2014. For more information, please CLICK HERE
