For a comprehensive and handy guide to deciphering the language of health insurance as well as advice for choosing a health insurance plan, look to this Student Health Insurance guide put together by the GC Student Affairs office.

Please contact and meet with Elise Perram, Associate Director of Student Affairs, to work through your options and for guidance on non-NYSHIP health insurance queries and concerns. She can help demystify the health insurance process and is an excellent resource for figuring out the steps you should take to make sure you are covered.

You can also take advantage of low-cost clinics in the area, or use services provided by the Wellness Center, including making an appointment with the nurse practitioner.
