All full-time, matriculated domestic students are required to have health insurance while enrolled at College of the Atlantic. Students must verify that they have other adequate health insurance coverage of at least $25,000 in order to waive automatic enrollment in the College of the Atlantic Student Health Insurance Plan. If you currently have health insurance coverage, it is your responsibility to determine that it meets or exceeds the coverage available through College of the Atlantic Student Health Insurance Plan. Often a student covered by a parents plan at home, will have limited or no benefits while at college or while away in other parts of the U.S. or in a foreign country. When reviewing your current medical insurance coverage, be sure it provides access to care in the State of Maine, and provides comprehensive coverage, extending beyond emergency care to include physician and hospital services. Students wishing to supplement their existing coverage by remaining in the College of the Atlantic Student Health Insurance Plan may do so.
The College of the Atlantic Student Health Insurance Plan has been developed especially for College of the Atlantic students. The Plan provides coverage on a secondary (excess) basis for Accident and Sickness that occur on and off campus and includes special cost-savings features to keep the coverage as affordable as possible. This plan can act on a primary basis when no other insurance is in force. College of the Atlantic is pleased to offer the Plan as described in the brochure.
