As of the 2022-23 academic year domestic (non-international) students are no longer required to provide proof of health insurance. Health insurance will not be provided through the university for domestic students.
The health fee provides on campus health services for triage visits and regular medical services. The health fee does not provide coverage for any injury or illness that requires off campus services such as New Paltz Rescue (ambulance), urgent care, hospital services, laboratory tests, or imaging studies, even for injuries that occur on campus. Students are expected to have health insurance to cover these unpredictable and expensive services.
Students under the age of 26 can be included in a family insurance plan. Domestic students who need their own insurance policy can find one through the insurance marketplace see https://nystateofhealth.ny.gov/
