Student Insurance Plan
Faculty Student Association of Westchester Community College
Accident and Sickness Insurance Plan
2012-2013 School Year
Policy Number: UFL2827S
The Faculty Student Association of Westchester Community College (“FSA”) is pleased to inform you of an improved Accident and Sickness insurance plan offered to all Full Time and Part Time Students at a reasonably cost. The FSA has made significant improvements to the insurance plan this year including the following just to name a few:
In March 2010 the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA), the blue print for national health care reform, was signed into law. Student Health Insurance programs are required to comply with the act. Because of this, certain benefits must be changed for the
2012-2013 school year. These changes will provide enhanced coverage or services to students who participate in the plan.
Following are some of the more important changes that insurance companies must implement for the 2012-2013 academic year:
- Insurance companies must cover all essential benefits including hospitalizations, emergency medical care, laboratory services, mental health care and prescription medications. A complete list of essential benefits can be found at:
- Preventative services such as: vaccinations, physicals and screenings as well as contraceptives must be covered and cannot include co-pays, deductibles or co-insurance requirements. A complete list of preventive services can be found at:www.healthcare.gov/news/factsheets/2010/07/preventive-services-list.html
- Pre-existing conditions cannot be excluded for any covered persons younger than the age of 19.
It is very important that all students refer to the Student Accident & Sickness Plan brochure located at www.ajfusa.com/students for complete details regarding the coverage, benefits, limits and exclusions.
