Proof of health insurance for all Health Sciences students is required prior to beginning the first clinical course, consistent with the requirements of our clinical education partners. With the increasing risks of providing patient care, it is necessary for you to be protected. This coverage is in addition to the accident insurance provided by the college. Each program will provide specific information related to their deadlines.
Health Insurance Coverage must be Major Medical Insurance. It usually includes primary and specialty care, urgent care including emergency room, hospital inpatient services, as well as ambulatory/outpatient services. Copays, deductibles, maximums, and services covered vary by policy.
Proof of insurance will be verified each semester by submitting a copy of an insurance card. Verification of coverage from the provider will also be required if the name on the card does not match (e. g. covered under a parent’s policy).
Students are required to keep the policy current and notify the program if changes occur. Failure to do so will result in removal from the clinical site and withdrawal from the program because students will not be able to meet their learning objectives.
Medi-share and other similar plans will not be accepted. After careful review and further consultation with the clinical agencies, it has been determined those plans do not meet the criteria of the clinical agencies.
Possible Resources (This is not an endorsement of any site or policy):
- Marketplace Health Insurance
- Central Health-Medical Access Program (MAP)*
- Foundation Communities Health Coverage Program
* MAP will be accepted to fulfill the health insurance requirement for the Fall 2022 semester. Please note MAP only covers care provided in Travis County. Clinical placements may be outside Travis County. Should an emergency occur, care may be received outside Travis County. Student will be responsible for any expenses not covered by the ACC accident insurance (see the program handbook for information about accident insurance; it is not health insurance).
