Do College Students Need the Campus Health Plan

Because Health & Counseling sometimes refers students off-campus for services beyond what we can provide, we strongly encourage students to have adequate health insurance. Be sure to check to see if you are covered by your family’s plan and if out-of-area services are covered.

Full-time students up to age 26 may be covered by a parent’s or family member’s private health insurance policy – be sure to check whether coverage extends to the Geneseo and Rochester areas. 

PLEASE NOTE: Services within Health & Counseling are covered by the Student Health Fee, which is mandated as part of each student's tuition and completely different from private health insurance coverage. 

If you do not currently have private health insurance coverage, you can contact New York State of Health for more information about family or individual health insurance. 

If you have other insurance specific questions or need assistance with the process, please call our local contact: Cindy Wagner, navigator for Coordinated Care Services, Inc.  Appointment line (585) 613-7662 press 3 for the Aged, Blind and Disabled Program  -
