New York School of Interior Design
STUDENT HEALTH INSURANCE PLAN
2013-2014 Academic Year
The New York School of Interior Design requires all undergraduate and graduate students taking 9 or more credits to be covered by a health insurance plan.
Any student who does not already have a health insurance plan will be automatically enrolled in the United Healthcare Student Insurance Plan, a program arranged by the college and administered through University Health Plans, Inc. A brochure outlining the benefits may be found by clicking on the brochure link. Students who are enrolled in this plan will be billed for single coverage. Dependent coverage may be purchased by clicking on the Dependent Enrollment Form Box. Students must enroll their dependents each academic year at the same time that the student enrolls in the plan.
The rates for the 2013- 2014 year are as follows:
This is an annual plan; students will be enrolled for both the Fall and Spring Semester. Please note December graduates will also be enrolled for the annual plan.
Due to healthcare reform requirements The New York School of Interior Design’s Student Health Insurance Plan implemented the following benefit changes/enhancements starting for the 2013/2014 Academic Year:
- Increased maximum benefit from $100,000 per policy year to $500,000 per policy year;
- Removed limitation of “benefits are limited to one visit per day.”
Any student who already has a health insurance plan that is comparable to the health insurance program offered by the school may choose to waive this coverage. Please be sure that services covered by your current health insurance plan are reasonably accessible in the NYSID area and include lab work, prescription drugs, outpatient hospital services, emergency room care, and hospitalization.
In order to waive coverage, you must login to the NYSID portal:
Click on the student tab, locate “Health Insurance Waiver” and click on the link. This will be available after 11/12/2012. You will need a copy of your current health insurance card, as this card contains the information you will need to complete the waiver form. You will receive a confirmation once you have successfully completed the waiver or enrollment process. Please retain this information. If you do not receive a confirmation, you will need to correct any errors and re-submit the information.
- Any student who does not submit a waiver form before 9/9/2013 will automatically be enrolled and charged for the full cost of the Annual Plan. Waivers will not be accepted after this date.
- No exceptions or refunds will be granted
- If a student’s number of credits drops below 9 after 9/9/2013. They will still be responsible for the full cost of the Annual Plan.
