Fees & Eligibility

CCA Student Health Insurance is through an Aetna PPO Plan.

The CCA Aetna PPO Plan also includes a membership with One Medical Group. One Medical provides high-quality, patient-centered primary care services with same-day/next-day appointments. One Medical accepts the CCA Plan through Aetna as well as many other national insurers. Students also have access to 24/7/365 virtual care by phone, email, and video conference, a mobile app for appointment scheduling and prescription refills, personal health coaching, and referrals to a network of specialists.

Full-time students who do not submit an online insurance waiver will be automatically enrolled in the Aetna plan and the One Medical membership. The cost of the plan is $1,491.49 for Fall 2018 (8/1/18-12/31/18) and $2,043.50 for Spring 2019 (1/1/19-7/31/19). For MFA Comics, the cost of the plan is $585.72 for Summer 2019. 

All full-time students who are registered in 12 or more units per term (9 units per term for all graduate students) 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 Aetna PPO plan. Students will be directed to a website in order to waive out of the CCA Aetna Health Insurance. Emails will be sent out to all students during the open waiver period for each term. 

Students must submit an online waiver application by:

Tuesday, September 11, 2018 (Fall term)
Tuesday, January 29, 2019 (Spring term)

Fees

An insurance fee is charged for each term at registration. The Fall fee is $1,491.49 and provides coverage from August 1, 2018, through December 31, 2018.

The Spring fee is $2,043.50 and provides coverage from January 1, 2019, through July 31, 2019.

For MFA Comics, the Summer fee is $585.72 and provides coverage from June 1, 2019, through July 31, 2019. 

Waivers

Full-time students may waive mandatory insurance enrollment by submitting an online insurance application by the established deadline. See the Waiver FAQ for more information about the online waiver process.

See waiver deadlines above.

Students who successfully submit Fall waivers will extend through the Spring term for the current academic year, unless Student Accounts is notified to void the waiver for Spring. Full-time status is determined at the end of the add/drop period at each term.

Part-Time Students

Undergraduate students registered for fewer than 12 units (and graduate students taking less than 9 units/term) are ineligible for the Aetna 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.

Note: Part-time students interested in remaining on the CCA health insurance during their final semester must contact the Dean of Students Office at access@cca.edu.

Dependents

Dependent coverage (spouse/domestic partner, children, or both) also is available according to the following schedule:

Fall 2018 | Spring/Summer 2019

 

Student fees
Fall = $1,491.49
Spring/Summer = $2,043.50

Add for spouse/partner only
Fall = $1,431.49
Spring/Summer = $1,983.50

Per child
Fall = $1,431.49
Spring/Summer = $1,983.50

2 or more children
Fall = $2,862.98
Spring/Summer = $3,967.00

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 graduate students), but who subsequently reduce their units to fewer than 12 units per term (or fewer than 9 units per term for graduate students) by dropping one or more courses during the add/drop period will lose eligibility for coverage under CCA’s health insurance plan.

Conversely, students who initially register for fewer than 12 units per term (or fewer than 9 units per term for graduate students) and then subsequently increase to 12 or more units per term (or more than 9 units per term for graduate students) 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.

Qualifying Event

Students who experience a qualifying event such as losing current health coverage, marriage, or having a baby, please contact the Office of the Dean of Students at access@cca.edu immediately for assistance. Students may be eligible for special enrollment periods, allowing to enroll in the CCA health insurance plan outside the open enrollment period for health coverage.
