Student Health Insurance
Union College requires that all students have health and accident insurance that has full annual coverage while in Schenectady. All students are billed for the health insurance with the Fall bill and this fee will remain on the student account unless the student waives the coverage and provides proof of active insurance.
TO WAIVE INSURANCE:
Domestic students may waive the Union College insurance fee but before they do, please note that some insurance plans are restrictive and may leave students either under-insured or essentially uninsured while away at school. This could result in you and/or your family incurring substantial out-of-pocket costs for medical care. In evaluating your plan, you must verify that you will be fully covered while in Schenectady.
Please compare your current health insurance plan with the plan offered by Union College. In reviewing your current insurance plan, please make sure you are adequately covered in Schenectady and that your plan covers the entire year. While out of network care will satisfy Union's waiver requirement, it is not recommended for best in care service. Out of network care (with most insurance policies) will result in higher out of pocket costs, deductibles copays and coinsurance as well as potentially delay treatment while waiting for insurance approvals. To compare your plan to Union's, please visit the Haylor, Freyer, & Coon website.
In order for the insurance fee to be removed from your student account, you will be asked to provide verification of coverage by uploading your active insurance card to the Haylor, Freyer, & Coon website. Once coverage is verified, your account will credited and the credit will be reflected on your billing statement. Please allow three business days for the credit to appear.
