Student Insurance

Insurance

Eastern Maine Community College has always been vitally concerned with the promotion of good health for its students. Therefore, we are pleased to announce the availability of our Student Accident and Sickness Insurance Plan. This plan will help provide benefits for covered accidents or sickness requiring medical treatment and is available to all students taking credit courses on or off campus. Students carrying more than six credit hours will be automatically charged for this insurance.

The student who has no other health insurance coverage will benefit most from this plan. In addition, for those with other insurance, this plan will ease the costs of out-of-pocket expenses and deductibles. Other insurance plans must be used to cover expenses before this plan’s benefits can be considered. Students enrolled in this insurance plan will be covered 24 hours a day. Coverage begins on August 15, 2014 or upon arrival for duly authorized class activity and ends on August 14, 2015. Athletes and Resident Assistants who arrive on campus early for the Fall semester will have their coverage start earlier at the discretion of the College.

The annual premium for this insurance is $745. The premium will be included in your tuition bill. Students enrolling for the second semester only will pay $469. Once enrolled, a student may not cancel the insurance. There are no refunds. Coverage continues until the Policy expires.

To Waive Insurance

Students who choose not to enroll need to complete the waiver form on MyEMCC no later than September 21, 2014 for the Fall semester or February 8, 2015 for Spring semester. Students will need to know their date of birth, student ID number, and current insurance coverage information to waive the student health insurance. No waiver requests will be accepted after the waiver deadline.
