For the 2018-19 academic year, the Optional Student Health Insurance - Plan 2 may be waived online with proof of other comparable insurance between July 16, 2018 and August 30, 2018. If you wish to waive the optional student health insurance coverage offered by the College complete the online waiver prior to the first day of fall semester classes of each academic year at www.studentplanscenter.com. Follow the prompts under the Kenyon College Health option. Upon successful completion of the online waiver, you will receive a confirmation page, please print and keep this page for your records.
International students, please note that College policy does not permit students with F-1 or J-1 status to waive the student health insurance unless the family holds U.S. employer provided health insurance meeting Federal ACA requirements.
Please pay close attention to the waiver deadline of August 30, 2018. Federal regulations of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) do not allow for any waiver exceptions after the August 30 waiver date.
ACA regulations, enforced by the IRS and administered by an independent insurance company state that the insurance coverage must be in effect for one year, therefore coverage cannot be waived after the August 30, 2018 deadline. If you do not waive the coverage by the waiver date, you will be responsible for payment, no exceptions.
Please note that we cannot cancel the optional medical insurance charge without written proof of comparable coverage from the student or parent.
For additional information concerning medical insurance coverage please refer to the Student Health Insurance Brochure at www.studentplanscenter.com.
