WELCOME KNOX COLLEGE STUDENTS!
The wellness of all members of the Knox community is of vital importance to us. To that end, we have established services to help students remain healthy and to aid them in the event of illness or injury.
The purpose of this website is to inform Knox College students and their families about student insurance programs and what to do when health services are required.
ACCIDENT INSURANCE PROTECTION
All Knox College full time degree seeking students are automatically enrolled in an accident insurance policy that provides specified medical benefits in the event a Knox College full time student is accidentally injured either on or off campus. An annual $83.00 fee (prorated fee is $60 for students beginning in the winter term or $50 for students beginning in the spring term) is assessed to all full time degree seeking students for this coverage. The accident insurance policy covers medical expenses due to a covered accident with no deductible. No policy benefits are available to pay for medical tests or care due to sickness or illness or any pre-existing conditions. The accident policy benefits are subject to limitations and exclusions and may not pay for 100% of all medical expenses. Students are responsible for paying medical expenses not covered by insurance.

INSURANCE FOR ILLNESSES OR OTHER MEDICAL CONDITIONS
Knox College is committed to helping students find the right options to ensure their well-being, which is why all Knox students are strongly advised to have comprehensive health insurance while in college. While basic health care is available through Health Services on campus, additional medical expenses including prescriptions, x-rays, lab tests, chronic or extended medical conditions, emergency medical care and hospital visits are the financial responsibility of the individual student.

STUDENT HEALTH INSURANCE OPTIONS
In past years, Knox College offered students a low cost health insurance supplement plan that provided insurance coverage for treatment of illnesses and other medical conditions. However, due to recent changes in health care laws, that plan is no longer available.
Although the College does not administer or provide comprehensive health insurance for students, we have identified some options available to students. Domestic students many remain on family health insurance plans until age 26. Students may also secure individual health insurance coverage.
Health Insurance plans for students are available from various insurance companies. Advertising brochures for student health insurance plan options are available from the on-campus Student Health Services office for your review and consideration. There are also links for these options in the left column of this page. Students interested in purchasing a student health insurance plan many contact and enroll with insurance companies directly by phone or on-line.
