    Mandatory Health Insurance

    Bates College requires that all students verify they have their own health insurance coverage by July 30th or be automatically enrolled in the Bates Student Health Insurance Plan. As a college student responsible for your own health decisions, you will be primarily responsible for managing your insurance claims while you are here. To do so, it is essential to understand your policy and the specifics included within it; you may want to contact your insurance company and update them that your temporary residence will be located in Maine at Bates College. We would also like to remind you to always have your insurance/prescription cards on hand and bring them with you to all health related appointments at Bates Health Services to ensure access to care.

    All Domestic students enrolled in 3 or more classes are eligible and are required to enroll or decline the Bates College Student Health Insurance Plan through their Garnet Gateway account. Students who have not made a selection by June 30, 2018 will be billed for the coverage and will have until July 30, 2018 to have the charge removed by declining coverage. After July 30, 2018 any student who has not declined the insurance will automatically be enrolled.

    All International students & Scholars will automatically be enrolled in and billed for the Bates College Student Health Insurance Plan. Please note that students awarded fee-based financial aid from Bates College will receive an additional grant to offset 100% of the insurance cost.

    We look forward to your arrival on campus this August. We are happy to answer questions about these requirements. Please contact us either by email, healthservices@bates.edu, or by calling 207-786-6199.
