Health Insurance

Given the increasing health risks of providing patient care, the Texas A&M College of Nursing requires all students to carry and maintain health insurance that meets or exceeds the minimum criteria set by the college. Students who presume they are still covered on their parents' policy are advised to confirm this with their insurance carriers. Some policies delete coverage for family members who reach a certain age, get married or no longer reside with their parents. Knowing these conditions in advance will allow time to obtain coverage. Under optimal conditions, for a healthy individual, this could take a month or more. Students must submit copies of their health insurance coverage with the Student Health Insurance Coverage form on an annual basis prior to the beginning of classes in the summer term.
