STUDENT HEALTH INSURANCE REQUIREMENT FOR FULL TIME STUDENTS
As a college student, you know the importance of having access to the health care you need – when and where you need it. Siena College also recognizes the importance of a student’s ability to pay for medical expenses when they arise, so that the educational opportunity is not jeopardized. Accordingly, per Siena College policy, all full-time students must have health insurance coverage for routine and non-emergency care in the Albany, NY, area. To ensure compliance with this policy, all Full-time Students are automatically enrolled and billed via their Siena student account. They must complete a waiver/online decision form annually by the posted deadline to opt out of the plan if they have other existing insurance that covers them in the Capital Region.
