Insurance Requirements
Students are required to have insurance for the 2013-2014 school year OR pay a 200/per semester health administrative fee.
 
Students may choose from these three options:
 
A) Show proof of insurance from a student’s family plan or personal plan.
(The PolyClinic accepts most insurance plans except Medicare and Medicaid. However, it is important that you make sure that the students insurance is not restricted to a specific city or state (i.e.: Memphis). In this case you may need to get additional coverage.) An acceptable insurance policy is a plan that will directly reimburse the students expenses at 3 of the 4 following medical locations:

    Bryan PolyClinic / PolyClinics.Net, PLLC
    Rhea Medical Center
    Quest Labs
    The Erlanger Hospital System

Please Note: Limit Coverage Plans (e.g. Kaiser Permanente's Urgent and Emergency Room coverage) ARE NOT accepted under the 3 out of 4 rule.

B) Buy student insurance (and submit proof) for the 2013-2014 school year through ACSA or another company. (Because health care laws have recently changed, rates for 2013-2014 will be published soon.)
 
C) Pay a $200/semester health administrative charge. This IS NOT INSURANCE, but is required for students who do not chose option 1 or 2. Also, this option is NOT open to student athletes.
 
If you choose to show proof of insurance, (options A or B) you will do so through eStudent.

EACH STUDENT MUST PRESENT PROOF OF INSURANCE EACH SEMESTER.
Any student who has not submitted proof of insurance by July 1 will be charged $200.

If you choose to pay the administrative health charge (option C) instead of purchasing insurance, please note the following:

    The $200 must be paid directly to Bryan College
    This cannot be paid through the tuition pay plan     
    Drop/Add Day will be last date a student has to submit proof of insurance and remove the charge from the student’s bill.
