Personal Health Insurance is required for all Hackensack Meridian Health JFK Muhlenberg Snyder School students. Please be advised that Union County College no longer offers personal health insurance, and this must be purchased independently. All Hackensack Meridian Health JFK Muhlenberg Snyder Schools Health Programs require Health Insurance to attend clinical classes. Failure to comply will result in your being unregistered from the course.
If you are not covered or will be covered by the start of the semester, you must obtain Health Insurance.
The Affordable Health Care Act Annual Open Enrollment Period for health insurance begins November 1, 2019 and extends through December 15, 2019. Students starting in the spring 2020 semester need to be enrolled by January. Medical Insurance can only be acquired during this open enrolment period unless there are allowed exceptions per the NJ State Banking and Insurance agency.
For more information about obtaining health insurance along with dates for open enrollment and conditions that permit purchase outside that open enrollment period, go to the NJ State Banking and Insurance website: http://www.state.nj.us/dobi/division_insurance/ihcseh/ihcmain.htm
