Student Health Insurance

The high cost of healthcare in the United States presents a potentially serious financial risk to students. Therefore, NYU requires that all students registered in degree-granting programs maintain health insurance.

Whether enrolled in an NYU-sponsored Student Health Insurance Plan or maintaining alternative health insurance coverage, ALL MATRICULATED NYU STUDENTS have access to comprehensive services at the Student Health Center (SHC). Many of the services at the SHC are provided at no cost or very reduced cost to all matriculated students.

Most students are enrolled automatically in the NYU-sponsored Student Health Insurance Plan as part of the course registration process. Students must complete the online enrollment/waiver process each academic year beginning in the fall to ensure that they are enrolled in the plan of their choice; supplement their current insurance with an NYU-sponsored plan, or waive the NYU-sponsored plans.

Patient Accounts

For services that are typically covered by insurance plans, NYU SHC will bill the student’s health insurance plan. If the insurance plan does not cover the service or does not pay the entire bill, the student is responsible for the bill.

If you anticipate problems paying your portion of the SHC bill, please contact Patient Accounts at health.patientaccounts@nyu.edu or (212) 443-1010.

Students are billed for unpaid balances on a monthly basis. However, if accounts are not settled in a timely manner, the unpaid balance is transferred to the Bursar’s office to be added to the student’s tuition account.
