Ithaca College has partnered with MVP Health Care to provide a student health plan with comprehensive coverage for students needing insurance protection. The Student Health Insurance Plan (SHIP) provides coverage from August 10, 2022 through August 9, 2023.
For students re-enrolling in the student health insurance plan, you must complete the online enrollment form by August 5, 2022 to ensure there is no interruption in your coverage. For students choosing the student health insurance plan for the first time, you have until September 15, 2022 to enroll in the plan. Please note, your coverage will not be effective until you complete the online enrollment form. For students who do not want the student health insurance plan, you must complete the online waiver form before September 15, 2022. Given the changes to the College’s student health services this year, families are strongly encouraged to review their insurance coverage prior to waiving the student health insurance plan.
If you have alternate health insurance coverage, you may be eligible to waive enrollment in the student health insurance plan. Students who do not submit the online waiver form by the September 15, 2022, deadline will be automatically enrolled in the Ithaca College student health insurance plan and will be responsible for paying the annual premium amount of $2,713, which will be charged to your student account. Submitting the online waiver form prior to the waiver deadline and having another qualifying health insurance plan is the only acceptable way to opt out of the Ithaca College student health insurance plan.
