Student Health Insurance

Enrolled students may opt for voluntary health insurance.

Students should determine the plan option that best meets their personal needs since each option has significant differences in coverage, and premium amounts between plans. Students are encouraged to review the options carefully before purchasing a plan.

Students complete the appropriate application and submit payments directly to the vendor. Payment of premiums is not processed through the WNC business office. If the premium amount exceeds the amount that is currently included in a student's financial aid package, a student may request an increase in their budget by providing the financial aid office with verification of payment.

Nursing and other Allied Health students are required to have major medical health insurance coverage effective the first day of semester classes. The Nursing and Allied Health department can provide additional information and complete verification that must be submitted to the Nursing and Allied Health office. Students who have financial concerns should contact the Financial Assistance office.

Current WNC students have the following health insurance plan option:

WNC students enrolled in one or more credits may purchase health insurance offered by Transamerica Life Insurance Company. It provides basic health services, but is not major medical health coverage. Information is available at www.ejsmith.com or from WNC's Business office.
