Waiver Information for Inbound Students
If you have your own insurance and would like to waive, you must turn in a copy of your insurance card (front and back) and a copy of the benefits that your plan offers. According to SUNY policy, to be eligible for a waiver, your plan must be comparable to the plan offered by SUNY. In other words, your plan must be just as good as the plan SUNY offers or better. You will not be granted a waiver if you plan does not match or exceed the SUNY plan in EVERY way. When you submit your paperwork for a waiver it must include your name, banner ID number, a phone number we can reach you at and your email address (this can be a personal email address). Waivers sent in after October 15th 2017 will not be accepted and you will be responsible to pay the insurance premium whether you have insurance or not. You can turn in your information to waive at the front desk of Weigel Wellness Center or you may fax or email the information. It can take up to 2 weeks to process a waiver. You will be notified, via email, if you are missing information or if your waiver has been denied.
The waiver must be completed annually. Insurance information must be turned in every year. If you completed a waiver last year, it does NOT carry over to this year. Please submit your insurance information again.
*Canadian Students, you cannot waive with OHIP only. You must have other supplemental insurance or you will not be granted a waiver.
The Class 8 FrontierMEDEX Medical Evacuation /Repatriation Policy for inbound students may be required if comparable coverage does not include this benefit.
Services at the Weigel Wellness Center are available to all registered students free of charge regardless of insurance coverage.
