Mandatory Health Insurance

 

Bates College requires that all students verify they have their own health insurance coverage by August 26th or be automatically enrolled in the Bates Student Health Insurance Plan.

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 August 26, 2022 will be billed for the coverage and will be automatically enrolled.

All International students & Scholars will automatically be enrolled in and billed for the Bates College 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. More information about insurance requirements for all students can be found here.

More information about financial aid and affording the cost of the Bates Student Health Insurance Plan can be found here.

We would also like to remind you to bring your health insurance card to all health related appointments at Bates Health Services to ensure access to care. Bates Health Services bills students’ health insurance.
