Health Insurance Information
St. John Fisher College requires all full-time students to have health insurance coverage. You may be required to provide insurance documents on request.
Health and Wellness Center Fees and Insurance Information
All students who pay the College's comprehensive fee are eligible to use the services of the Health and Wellness Center. The comprehensive fee covers insurance co-pays for all medical visits. Your health insurance company will be billed for all medical office visits. There is no charge for counseling services provided by our licensed mental health counselors.
Students WITHOUT Health Insurance
All students without health insurance coverage will be charged $25 for each medical visit to the Health and Wellness Center. The College will bill students for such medical health care visits. If any students are unable to pay the $25 office visit fee, they may declare medical hardship status. Medical hardship status is granted on a case-by-case basis. Students must complete the Declaration of Financial Hardship [pdf].
Note: As of July 2017, St. John Fisher College will no longer offer a student insurance plan. We encourage students who are in need of health insurance to visit the NY State of Health website to find a plan that is affordable and right for your health needs.
Students WITH Health Insurance
Don’t forget your St. John Fisher College ID card and health insurance card!
If you have health insurance, you will need to bring your Fisher ID card and health insurance card for each visit to the Health and Wellness Center. Doing so will ensure that we have the correct information to bill your insurance company for our fees.
