ii. Student Health Insurance
Although we strongly encourage all students to obtain health insurance, it is optional for degree seeking students. Corcoran’s contract with Academic HealthPlans (AHP) provides an option for students to purchase coverage. The basic 2012-2013 (AHP) student coverage rate is $1,732 per year, with an August 2012 to August 2013 term and must be purchased by August 31, 2012. For more detailed information about the plan and its requirements, please visit the Academic Health Plans (AHP) website at www.AHPCare.com/corcoran. Students who do not have health insurance with Academic HealthPlans are required to submit a signed waiver to the Office of Student Accounts. Health insurance waivers must be submitted to the Office of Student Accounts by September 15, 2012.
iii. Special Medical Conditions
To safeguard the health of the Corcoran community, the College requests that students with chronic medical conditions that may require emergency treatment wear medical identification. Please notify the Office of Student Affairs if you have anaphylactic allergies, hemophilia, diabetes, epilepsy, a compromised immune system, or another chronic condition. This information will be kept confidential, and will only be shared with appropriate ersonnel in medical emergencies.
IV. Mental Health
All students need to be aware of the stress factors while attending college that can sometimes trigger unexpected reactions, making everyday life seem out of control. Many students are uncertain if they just need to talk with someone or schedule an appointment with a mental health professional. The Corcoran will pay for three emergency sessions with one of five contracted mental health professionals. After three visits, each student’s health insurance program can extend the number of sessions if needed. First students will need to speak briefly with the dean of students. To begin the process of scheduling a referral, please contact Lacey Gentry, firstname.lastname@example.org.
