All full-time students (12 credits or more) must annually demonstrate health insurance coverage in order to attend Grove City College. Part-time students (11 hours or less) are not required to submit health insurance information nor are they eligible to purchase the College's health insurance plan.
For students covered under an alternative insurance plan (via a parent, guardian, etc.), health insurance information must be provided to the College via the health insurance portal in myGCC.
For students without alternative coverage, the College partners with UnitedHealthcare to offer a Student Injury and Sickness Plan. The cost of annual coverage for 2017-18 is $1,556, which runs from August 15, 2017 to August 14, 2018. The College does not retain or benefit from any portion of the premium, and students are welcome to purchase insurance elsewhere. View coverage details of this plan at www.firststudent.com by selecting Grove City College from the drop down menu.
To submit or purchase health insurance coverage, log in to myGCC, open the Health Insurance portlet under the Student menu, and make a selection to purchase the College plan or enter current, valid health insurance information. Students may submit their health insurance status beginning May 1 for the upcoming academic year. If a student participates in a Healthcare Sharing Ministry instead of a traditional plan, provide the name of the ministry utilized.
Students are required to submit this information each academic year. If a student has a change in health insurance status during the academic year, the change must be submitted through the Health Insurance portlet in myGCC at that time. If a student loses coverage mid-year under their original plan, the student may qualify to purchase the College plan due to a Qualifying Life Event upon providing proof of involuntary loss of coverage within 30 days of losing coverage. The student should contact the Office of Student Accounts immediately upon loss of coverage to determine if they are eligible for mid-year enrollment in the College plan.
Health insurance details provided to the College are private and confidential. Only employees with access to student health records will be able to view information.
