The University sponsored Student Health Plan is available through GM Southwest Student Health Insurance. All resident students automatically receive health service privileges, as student health insurance is included in the fee for room and board. Student health insurance is also required for all commuter international students, student-athletes, Nursing and Physical Therapy students enrolled in Clinical courses and student teachers assigned to Fairfax County schools.
Marymount University allows F-1 international visa students, commuter Nursing and Physical Therapy program students enrolled in Clinical courses and commuter student teachers assigned to Fairfax County schools to opt out of the University's health insurance plan by showing proof of existing coverage and completing a waiver form.
The deadline to file a waiver for the spring 2013 semester is February 8, 2013; and June 15, 2013 for the summer 2013 semester. These deadline dates are not revocable.
This insurance is available to all students taking nine or more credits in the fall or spring semester or six or more credits in the summer semester. It provides basic sickness, injury and pharmacy benefits, and is intended to supplement parental and/or other primary insurance coverage. This is not a comprehensive benefits plan. You can access GM Southwest insurance for Plan 1 and Plan 2 brochures and other helpful informaton.
The purchase of the Marymount University Student Health Insurance plan does not entitle commuter students to use the services of the Student Health Center. Brochures, forms, and assistance are always available at the Student Health Center.
When seeing your physician or incurring any charges, always have any additional insurance coverage documentation available (i.e. cards and/or ID numbers in your name from separate plans that you or your parents hold).
Student health insurance and Marymount University Student Health Services are not connected.
