Accident Insurance Program

Student Accident Insurance Program


All enrolled full-time, part-time and new Summer Session students are covered 24 hours a day for Accidents that occur on campus or at a college-sponsored activity/event.  Please note, if you have private medical insurance coverage in affect already, this coverage will take over where your primary insurance leaves off.

If you do not have health insurance or your health insurance costs too much, you (students AND non-students) can enroll in health coverage through the New York Health Exchange. This fact sheet details the program.  You are also encouraged to check out the Community Hub, located on campus, as well.  Please visit for information on available resources and how to contact the office for more information. 

Please do not assume that you cannot afford health insurance-there are many factors which affect the rate you may pay. Other options may be available including assistance through the County in which you maintain your permanent residence.  

Do you have questions? Please call their Helpline at 1-855-355-5777 Monday-Friday between 8am-8pm and Saturday between 9am-1pm.

The Office of the Dean for Student Affairs provides this information to students, however, if you have specific questions regarding coverage or how to enroll, you will need to call customer service at the above number for assistance.
