Health Insurance

Important Student Health Insurance Update !


Please be advised that due to insufficient enrollment, CUNY's student health insurance program with United Healthcare will not be offered in the 2014-15 academic year. Students currently enrolled in the United Healthcare plan can maintain their insurance through August of 2014. To avoid a lapse in coverage, please visit the NY State of Health website before August, or speak with a navigator or in-person assistor  on your campus. Please note the discontinuation of the student health insurance plan is considered a qualifying event that will allow currently enrolled students to purchase insurance within 60 days of losing coverage. 

For questions please email Patti Lamberson at: patti.lamberson@mail.cuny.edu.
