All full-time students who are registered in 12 or more units per term (9 units per term for the Graduate Program in Visual and Critical Studies (VCS) students or 9 units per term for the MFA Program in Writing (MFAW) continuing students for the 2014-15 academic year) are considered full-time students and therefore required to have health insurance coverage.
The college has secured a group health insurance policy that provides coverage for up to 12 months each year.
Non-CCA Health Plan
Current students who seek to continue with a non-CCA health insurance plan are required to officially waive the insurance enrollment in the Kaiser Permanente HMO plan. Students will be directed to a website in order to waive out of the CCA Kaiser Health Insurance.
Students must submit an online waiver application by:
Friday, September 12, 2014 (fall term)
Friday, January 30, 2015 (spring term)
An insurance fee is charged for each term at registration. The fall fee is $945.10 and provides coverage from August 15, 2014 through December 31, 2014.
The spring fee is $1,568.17 and provides coverage from January 1, 2015, through August 14, 2015.
Full-time students may waive mandatory insurance enrollment by submitting an online waiver application. See the Waiver FAQ for more information about the online waiver process.
See waiver deadlines above.
Fall waivers will extend through the spring term unless Student Accounts is notified to void the waiver for spring. Full-time status is determined at the end of the add/drop period.
Students registered for fewer than 12 units (except for VCS students taking 9 units/term and the MFAW continuing students taking 9 units/term for the 2014-15 academic year) are ineligible for the Kaiser Permanente HMO student health plan.
However, other options do exist.
Students are encouraged to see what options are available on the insurance marketplace. Financial assistance may be available.
Students who prefer not to go through the marketplace can contact Wells Fargo Insurance Services at 888.717.1100 for more information about an individual plan. For Kaiser Permanente Individuals and Family plans, please go to the Kaiser website or call 800.488.3590.
Note: Part-time students interested in remaining on the CCA health insurance during their final semester must contact Director of Access & Wellness Services Suzanne Raffeld at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Dependent coverage (spouse/domestic partner, children, or both) also is available according to the following schedule:
Fall 2014 | Spring/Summer 2015
Fall = $945.10
Spring/summer = $1,568.17
Add for spouse/partner
Fall = $3,111.85
Spring/summer = $5,186.08
Fall = $572.40
Spring/summer = $953.67
Notes: Rates listed above are in addition to the student rates.
Changes in Status
Students who initially register for 12 units per term (or 9 units per term for VCS students or 9 units per term for the MFAW continuing students for the 2014-15 academic year), but who subsequently reduce their units to fewer than 12 units per term (or fewer than 9 units per term for VCS students or fewer than 9 units per term for the MFAW continuing students for the 2014-15 academic year) by dropping one or more courses during the add/drop period will lose eligibility for coverage under CCA’s health insurance plan.
Such affected students may contact Wells Fargo Student Insurance Services at 888.717.1100.
Conversely, students who initially register for fewer than 12 units per term (or fewer than 9 units per term for VCS students or fewer than 9 units per term for the MFAW continuing students for the 2014-15 academic year) and then subsequently increase to 12 or more units per term (or more than 9 units per term for VCS students or more than 9 units per term for the MFAW continuing students for the 2014-2015 academic year) before the end of the add/drop period will be required to enroll in CCA’s student health insurance plan or provide proof of alternative coverage.
