Accidental Injury Coverage

Skateboarding and break your wrist?  Fell off those spiked heels and sprained your ankle?  JCC knows accidents can result in uncovered medical bills for our students.

Accidental insurance is recommended, but optional for part-time students.  The following students are automatically enrolled in mandatory Accidental Injury Medical Insurance coverage (covers both on & off-campus injuries):

  • All full time students
  • Animal Management/Zoo Technology Students
  • Hospitality and Tourism
  • Nursing students
  • Paramedic students
  • Fire Protection

 

Residential Student Health Insurance Requirements

All students living on-campus are required to have and maintain health insurance as a condition of residency, and must provide health insurance information as part of residence hall applications.

 

Health Insurance Options for U.S. Students

  • Anyone can apply for subsidized insurance from November until open enrollment closes (usually at the end of the following January).
  • Low income students can generally sign up anytime. 
  • Those who lose job based insurance benefits, who are moving to the college from outside the local area; or have “qualifying life event” have a time limited ‘Special Enrollment Period’ to apply.
