Concerned with the need for protection against unexpected and frequently high medical expenses which may be incurred by our students, we are pleased to announce a program of insurance which has been especially designed for the needs of our students. This plan will give greater assurance to our students that medical bills will not place a financial burden on themselves or their parents.
Payment of $550 automatically provides coverage for a full year beginning June 30, 2012 at 12:01 am and expiring on August 1, 2013 at 12:00 am. Students are required to carry insurance while attending NMCC, and this charge will be included as part of the College charges, unless such coverage is waived by the student with proof of other insurance prior to September 23, 2012. For new second semester students, the charge is $367 (coverage period 1/1/13 to 8/1/13) and the waiver deadline is February 3, 2013.
If you have other insurance coverage and wish to waive the Northern Maine Community College Student Injury and Sickness Insurance plan, go to www.crossagency.com/nmcc. Click on the “Waive Insurance” link and follow the instructions. The on-line waiver will request the name and policy number of your current insurance plan, so have that information available. Upon successful completion and submission of the waiver request, you will receive an electronic confirmation number that should be kept for your records. If you need to make any changes in your election to waive the coverage, you will need to contact the Business Office at the College. A paper waiver form is available at the Business Office for students without internet access.
