General Insurance Information
SUNY New Paltz requires full-time students to have health insurance; this is further explained on the Student Accounts website. This site explains that students with 12 credits are billed for the College's health insurance plan, offered through United Healthcare. Students may waive this policy only by completing a waiver when paying their bill on their my.newpaltz account. Students doing so must have another form of health insurance. A waiver MUST be completed no later than the second week of the semester. Waiver requests received after the deadline cannot be honored.
Dependent coverage is also available to all eligible students that enroll in the Student Health Insurance plan. For this benefit, visit: www.haylor.com/newpaltz
The plan utilizes a preferred provider organization (PPO) to hold down student costs. The utilized PPO is United Healthcare. United Healthcare offers a national network of physicians, hospitals and other providers. Please note that even though you may find a provider on their website, this does not guarantee the provider is currently on the plan. You should always ask the provider's office if they still continue to participate in United Healthcare, as providers sometimes discontinue their participation in PPOs.
Students who are taking 11 or less credits will not have the opportunity to enroll in the Student Health Insurance Plan. If you are in need of Health Insurance and you are not eligible to enroll in the Student Health Insurance Plan, then you may sign up for Health Insurance through the Marketplace:
