SUNY Potsdam highly recommends that all students have health insurance. Beginning Fall 2019, there will be no SUNY Potsdam Insurance Plan.
Here are some health insurance options available to you:
- The Health Initiative will help you through the ADK Wellness Connections (personalized assistance to find the Health & Wellness resources you need).
- The Affordable Care Act: Income eligible students can apply for free or low cost insurance at any time. Students above income limits have a January 31st deadline to apply (View eligibility for “Essential Plans” by income and household size). General cost per individual based upon income.
- Health Insurance Navigators know all the insurance application rules, and are a better resource than the online website. Income eligible students generally will have health insurance the same day they apply. To make an appointment with a Health Insurance Navigator, please call Community Health Center of the North Country at (315) 379-8107 and they can meet you on campus to discuss your health insurance options.
