Student Health Insurance

Keystone College expects all full-time students to carry personal health insurance. All College Athletes and International Students are required to provide proof of their health insurance coverage. International students can contact International Student Services for assistance at 1-(570) 945-8252 or email internationalservices@keystone.edu.

Buying Your Own Health Insurance Coverage

At this point in your college career, you probably haven’t given much thought to health insurance, but even if you’re still on your parents’ plan, you won’t be forever. Now is the time to start learning about your options so you are prepared to make the best decision for your health when the time comes.

Health Insurance Options for the Uninsured

Multiple services are available to assist in acquiring the insurance policy best suited to the students’ needs. Students that do not have Health Insurance are encouraged to visit these helpful sites:

Student Health Insurance Policy

Maintaining personal health is vital to success as a college student. Keystone College expects all full-time students to carry personal health insurance. Effective August 22, 2015, Keystone College no longer sponsors a student health insurance plan. Multiple websites and services are available to assist in acquiring the insurance policy best suited to the students’ needs and can be found on the Health Services web page.

All College Athletes must maintain active medical insurance during their athletic season to be eligible to participate in practice and competition. Proof of health insurance will be collected at the beginning of each athletic season (Fall, Winter and Spring).

International Students must provide proof of health insurance coverage that has benefits that will cover them in United States and locally to Keystone College at the beginning of every academic year.

Keystone College Health Services is not equipped to bill health insurance and no co-payments will be charged for an appointment. Most services in Health Services are built into full- time students’ fees with the exception of in-house prescription medications, immunizations, tuberculosis skin tests, and services rendered through Maternal and Family Health Services. Should laboratory or radiology testing, referrals or prescriptions be needed, the staff will do its best to help the student chose an in-network provider, but it is ultimately of the responsibility of the student to comply with insurance requirements. In the event laboratory/radiology testing, prescriptions or referral to other community providers would be ordered by the College Health Services staff, all medical bills are the responsibility of the students for private payment and/or insurance coverage. Keystone College is not responsible for any medical bills incurred from services rendered at private physicians/specialists, outpatient services or hospitals.
