Student Health Insurance

Felician College mandates that all full-time undergraduate students must have medical insurance that includes hospitalization. All full-time Felician College students are assessed an insurance fee, as part of their student fees. A full-time student status is defined as having 12 credits or more.

Part time undergraduates and graduate students taking six or more credits are eligible to enroll on a voluntary basis. Eligible dependents of enrolled students may participate in the plan. Use the following link www.firststudent.com to enroll in the voluntary plan. You must pay by check or credit card. This must be completed before Labor Day 9/1/14. Any student that loses coverage during the school year can obtain health coverage by enrolling into the plan, within 30 days of the qualifying event with documentation of prior coverage and information of policy termination.

For the 2014-2015 college year, our plan name is United Healthcare Choice Plus. Preferred Providers can be found using the following link www.firststudent.com.
