Sarah Lawrence College requires all students to carry adequate medical insurance to help cover the extra expenses of medical treatment that are not covered by our Health Services. The Student Accident and Sickness Insurance Plan, offered through Consolidated Health Plans and underwritten by Nationwide Life Insurance Company, provides coverage to students for a 12 month period, September 1 through September 1. The plan includes a local and national network of Preferred Providers and is designed to be an affordable option.
Students who determine that they have existing comparable coverage will need to complete and submit the online Waiver Form (downloadable below) by the stated deadline. It is the student’s responsibility to carefully compare his/her current insurance plan with that offered by SLC to ensure that the coverage is truly comparable for medical, mental health, and prescription drug coverage. By signing the waiver, you are attesting to the fact that you are familiar with both plans and will be responsible to provide for your medical and/or mental health needs should your own insurance prove insufficient. If you do not have comparable health insurance, or do not submit the online Waiver Form by the deadline, you will be required to purchase the Student Accident and Sickness plan and will automatically be enrolled.
If you have any questions regarding the Student Accident and Sickness Plan, please consult Consolidated Health Plans' Frequently Asked Questions, or contact Consolidated Health Plans at 1 -800-633-7867.
