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. Most students are enrolled and charged automatically in the NYU-sponsored Student Health Insurance Plan as part of the course registration process.
All matriculated NYU students have access to services at the Student Health Center (SHC) whether or not you're enrolled in NYU-sponsored Student Health Insurance.
SHC is in network with the following plans:
- Basic, Comprehensive & Tandon
- NYU Abu Dhabi, NYU Shanghai, and NYU Study Away
- Choice, Choice Plus, Select, Select Plus, Oxford Freedom, Liberty, Options, Indemnity
For all other insurance plans, the SHC is out of network.
NYU-sponsored Student Health Insurance
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.
Join Us for an "Insurance 101" Orientation
We'll review the NYU-sponsored insurance plans, explain how to enroll in or waive NYU-sponsored insurance, talk about how healthcare works in the U.S., and go over how to get care at NYU.

Billing & Patient Accounts
Many of the services at the SHC are provided at no cost or very reduced cost to all matriculated students.
NYU SHC will bill the student’s health insurance carrier for charges incurred at SHC. If the insurance plan does not cover the service or does not pay the entire bill, the student is responsible for the bill.
