If you participate in the NYU sponsored student health insurance plans, administered by Wellfleet Group, LLC (i.e., the Washington Square “Basic” and “Comprehensive” Plans and the Tandon School of Engineering “Tandon” Plan):
Given the unique situation that continues to evolve around the coronavirus, students with NYU-sponsored Student Health Insurance (Washington Square “Basic” and “Comprehensive Plans”) are no longer required to seek a referral from the NYU Student Health Center before accessing care in Manhattan. The referral exception will remain in place until further notice.
Wellfleet is waiving out-of-pocket costs for all COVID-19 treatment through May 31, 2020. We’ll waive all co-pays, deductibles and co-insurance. Similar to a preventative visit, like your annual physical, you’ll have no out-of-pocket costs for your treatment. This applies to Wellfleet Insurance Carrier plans.
Wellfleet will continue to cover student member costs for COVID-19 testing.
For additional coverage information specific to your school, visit your school’s page on WellfleetStudent.com or call our dedicated Coronavirus hotline – (833) 343-5338. Hours of operation are Monday – Friday 8:30 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.
Wellfleet Student members should contact their student health care centers or visit their school’s page on WellfleetStudent.com to find a provider. When contacting, be sure to advise them of your recent travel and symptoms and try to avoid contact with others.
If you do not participate in the NYU sponsored student health insurance plans, i.e., you “waived” this coverage and are using your own or your parents’ insurance coverage, then you most likely remain covered but should contact your insurance carrier to verify the particular terms of your coverage.
