Insurance Waiver and Enrollment Process

College of the Atlantic requires that all full-time, matriculated students have health insurance coverage while enrolled. Every student will be enrolled in the COA Health Insurance Plan unless they waive out of the plan by providing proof of comparable insurance coverage by the waiver deadline. Please read the following information regarding the waiver and enrollment processes.

WAIVER PROCESS
If you have health insurance and wish to waive the College of the Atlantic Student Health Plan, go to www.crossagency.com/coa and click on the "Waive Insurance" link and follow the instructions to complete the waiver form. The form will request the name and policy number of your current insurance plan, so have that information available. A successful waiver will generate an electronic confirmation which should be kept for your records. You have only one opportunity to waive the insurance via the website. If you need to make any change in your election to waive the coverage, you will need to contact Lauren Rupp at lrupp@coa.edu or 207-801-5671.

For the 2013-2014 Academic Year, the waiver process will be available beginning May 1, 2013 and will continue through June 21, 2013. If you do not complete the online waiver process by the designated date, you will be automatically enrolled in the COA Student Health Plan and your student account will be charged. Students only waive out once per academic year, but if a student misses the waiver deadline, they will be held responsible for the charge for the entire academic year. No refund is available and coverage continues until the policy expires.

ENROLLMENT PROCESS
If you do not complete the online waiver by the June 21, 2013 deadline, you will be automatically enrolled in the COA Student Health Plan and your student account will be charged. Insurance ID cards will be placed in On-Campus Mailboxes at the beginning of the term. A temporary card can be issued upon request after the waiver deadline has passed.
