Student Health Insurance Information
Student Health Insurance
St. John Fisher College requires all full-time students to have health insurance coverage. You may be required to provide insurance documents on request.
If you do not have health insurance, St. John Fisher College has an established relationship with the Nationwide Life Insurance Company to provide student health insurance.
The plan coverage runs from August 1, 2016 through July 31, 2017. The cost of coverage for this time-frame is $2,735 and will be billed to your student account upon enrollment. The deadline to enroll for coverage for this time frame is September 30, 2016.
The new Health Insurance Plan Brochure for 2016-17 will be available and posted before June 30, 2016.
In compliance with recent federal healthcare legislation, St. John Fisher College has modified the offerings of the student medical plan this year. The cost of the offering has increased due to the federal action but the coverage has improved with a lower deductible and limited student out-of-pocket expenses. The College conducted an extensive review of insurance options and chose Nationwide for the student health insurance coverage for the 2016-17 academic year.
