Many Colleges require that all students be covered by health insurance while attending school. Working with Cross Insurance Agency, Maine College of Art is sponsoring a Student Health Insurance Program. All eligible students are automatically enrolled in Plan 1 which provides students with benefits up to $1,000 for each covered Injury. Plan 2 provides eligible students with additional Injury benefits as well as Sickness benefits for a total maximum benefit of $10,000 per covered Injury or covered Sickness. Plans 1 and 2 are effective on June 30, 2012 and expire on September 1, 2013. The plans provide benefits for covered Injuries and Sickness that occur on and off campus.
All registered students taking 9 or more credit hours are automatically enrolled in and charged for Maine College of Art's Plan 2 unless proof of medical insurance is provided via the online Waiver Form at www.crossagency.com/meca. Select the "Waive Insurance" link and follow the instructions on the form. Online Waiver Forms cannot be accepted after September 14, 2012 for fall. Online Waiver Forms for spring cannot be accepted after January 25, 2013. Students who waive the insurance in the fall do not need to waive again for the spring. Students who have not waived the insurance by the deadline will be insured in both Plan 1 and Plan 2 through August 31, 2013. Waivers will not be accepted after the deadline.
The student cost of Plan 2 for the full year (6/30/12–8/31/13) is $890 or for the spring term (1/1/13–8/31/13) is $594. Once enrolled and after the waiver deadline has passed, coverage cannot be cancelled and the premium is non-refundable.
