Students must verify that they have other adequate health insurance coverage in order to waive automatic enrollment in the Student Health Insurance Plan.
If you currently have health insurance coverage, it is your responsibility to determine that it meets or exceeds the coverage available through the Student Health Insurance Plan. Often a student covered by a parent’s plan at home, will have limited or no benefits while at college or while away in other parts of the U.S. or in a foreign country.
When reviewing your current medical insurance coverage, be sure it provides access to care in the State of Maine, and provides comprehensive coverage, extending beyond emergency care to include physician and hospital services. Students wishing to supplement their existing coverage by remaining on the COA Student Health Insurance Plan may do so.
The COA Student Health Insurance Plan has been developed especially for COA students and functions as a major medical plan.
