Health Insurance
 
Catawba recognizes the importance of good health and its potential impact on your success in school. The College recognizes the ultimate risk you face with inadequate or the absence of insurance. In order to minimize this risk, the College offers to the students an accident and health insurance policy. This can be purchased through the College. It is mandatory all full time undergraduate students be covered by personal or school insurance. If a student cannot provide proof of coverage to Health Services and the Business Office, the student will be charged for school insurance. The coverage for the 2010-2011 school year will be provided by United HealthCare. Students must notify Health Services of any changes in health coverage.

Student’s personal insurance will be billed by Salisbury Pediatric Associates for all on-campus visits during physician hours on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. The co-pay for these on-campus visits will be waived.

If a student’s coverage is an out of state HMO, parents are strongly advised to inquire about "guesting privileges" from their private insurance company.

If you have any questions regarding this insurance, you may access more detailed information on the College website or through the Proctor Student Health Center.

*Effective since 2010-2011 academic year
