Student Health Insurance

Many dependent students are covered under their parents’ health insurance.  Due to the changes in the new federal health care laws, by January 2011 a parent’s insurance plan will cover child dependents up to the age of 26. If you are an independent student or seeking alternative options, please read below for further information.

Connecticut Community College Insurance Coverage

Coverage while on Campus (Plan A)

Students are automatically enrolled in the CT Community-Technical College Plan A, which covers student injuries only.  Accidents on or off campus during events sponsored by the College are covered under this plan. . Plan A is effective the first day of classes and lasts for one full calendar year.

Reporting Accidents or Injury

Please note that any accident taking place on campus or at a college-sponsored event off campus should be reported to the office of the Dean of Administrative Affairs as soon as possible.

Alternative Health Insurance Options (Plan B)

The Connecticut Community College system negotiates an alternative student health insurance plan available to students through United Healthcare.  This is called Plan B for Injury and Sickness.

Click here for the United Healthcare Student Resources Website for more information and to enroll online.


Students must actively attend classes for at least the first 31 days after the date for which the coverage is purchased. Eligible students who enroll in Plan B may also insure Dependents. Dependents are the spouse and unmarried children under 19 years of age or 23 years if a full time student. Home study, correspondence, Internet and television courses do not fulfill the Eligibility requirements.
