On January 13th, I had the great honor of accompanying Dr. Kress and Student Government Senator Leon Rice to the White House. MCC was recognized for providing increased access to insurance during the White House Healthy Campus Challenge, which ran from 11/1/16-12/15/16. We were thrilled to meet the former First Lady Michelle Obama, who encouraged us to continue helping students access affordable, high quality health insurance.
Health Services began bringing insurance application counselors to campus four years ago and we will continue this for the foreseeable future. Please let students know they may still enroll in insurance through the New York State Insurance Marketplace. Many uninsured MCC students qualify for the Essential Plan ($20/month) or Medicaid, and enrollment for those plans is year round. Regardless of future uncertainty, the time to enroll is now! Please see attached flyer for more information about dates and times. Thank you!
