Health Insurance Options for U.S. Students

  • During “open enrollment”, anyone can apply for health insurance.  In New York, open enrollment usually starts on November first, and usually ends at the end of the following January.
  • Low income students can generally sign up anytime. 
  • If you lose job-based health insurance benefits; or move to the college from outside the local area; or have a “qualifying life event”, you have a time limited ‘Special Enrollment Period’ to apply for a new health insurance plan.
  • Appointments for insurance information and enrollment may be made with insurance enrollment facilitators at the Health & Wellness Center on campus by calling (315) 786-1042 or with insurance navigators from the following agencies:

Call 800.279.8679 or (315) 788-8533 to make a health insurance navigator appointment.
