All full-time, matriculated domestic and international 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 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.
