CUNY Student Health Insurance Program
When it comes to health coverage, you know what matters most. With our program, you can get the hospital, medical and prescription drug coverage you need. It provides coverage for a wide range of network-only benefits, including annual checkups, lab tests, preventive care, emergency room care and much more, with no need for referrals when you visit specialists.
Who Is Eligible
This program is available to matriculated CUNY students (including international students) who are enrolled for six credits or more a semester, as well as their dependents (spouses, domestic partners and children up to the end of the month in which they reach age 26).

Signing up for this plan is simple. When you're ready, print a copy of our enrollment form and complete it. Before you send it back to us, your college Registrar's office has to stamp the form to confirm your enrollment. Remember to keep a copy for your records before you mail it to us.
