Student Health Insurance Update
As of the 2016-2017 academic year, Harcum College will not offer a student health insurance plan. Students who previously relied upon the student health insurance plan will now need to find coverage from another source. Students should first determine if they are eligible for extended dependent coverage under a parent’s health insurance plan. The next step requires the student to access the health insurance exchange for your state. For more information about the health care law, finding insurance options, and accessing the health insurance marketplace offerings, please visit www.healthcare.gov.
Students should begin the process to obtain new health insurance coverage at least 30 days prior to the expiration of the current insurance in order to avoid any lapse in coverage.
With the passage of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA), all citizens must have insurance coverage through a PPACA compliant plan or they will be subject to tax fines (effective January 1, 2014).
