Health Insurance Information for 2011-2012 Academic Year
All full-time matriculated students and certification students enrolled in 12 or more credits for undergraduate or 9 or more credits for graduate students are automatically charged for Rowan University insurance coverage for the entire academic year. If you already have health coverage and wish to waive this policy and its cost, act now and remove this charge from your bill.**
This year student health insurance cost will be increasing from $250 to $715 annually for undergraduate and from $361 to $1,033 for graduate students. The coverage being provided by the new student health insurance plan has been improved in keeping with the premium increase. The new policy will have a $50,000 per accident or illness policy limit with a $1,000 prescription drug benefit and $750 in wellness benefits. Students who have other coverage available will be able to waive out of the student health insurance plan.
New Jersey Statute 18A:62-15 provides in part that:
1. Every student enrolled as a full-time student shall present evidence of the health
insurance coverage required by subsection a. of this section to the institution
at least annually.
2. The State Department of Health shall require all public and private
institutions of higher education in the state to offer health insurance
coverage on a group or individual basis for purchase by students who
are required to maintain coverage pursuant to this section.
In addition to the State mandates, the United States Department of Health and Human Services has issued proposed regulation that would establish rules for student health insurance coverage under the Public Health Service Act and the Affordable Care Act. In view of the new federal health care legislation which mandates the phasing in of substantial improvement to the standard college student health insurance policy, the Colleges collectively decided to proactively address the problem and we are proud to present our students with a greatly improved student helath insurance plan.
