Student Health Insurance
Written by Doug Van Wyngarden

The Affordable Care Act (ACA) requires everyone legally living in the U.S. to have health insurance. It is also Trinity Christian College policy that students carry health insurance. If you do not have insurance through your parents’ or your own employers’ plan, the Affordable Care Act (ACA) gives millions of individuals with too little or no insurance access to health plans at different cost levels. The law also provides financial assistance to those who qualify based on family size and income.

Please note that OPEN ENROLLMENT for health coverage in the US ends on February 15, 2015. It is your responsibility to seek coverage by that date.

Here are some helpful web resources for you as you seek health coverage:

·         GetCoveredIllinois.gov. This is the health insurance marketplace site for Illinois, where you can shop and sign up for insurance.

·         GetCoveredIllinois hotline, (888) 809-2796. This help desk answers questions about signing up and shopping for insurance in Illinois and Medicaid.

·         Healthcare.gov. This is the federal government website links to the health insurance exchanges offered across the country

·         www.getcoveredamerica.org/enroll/.  Enter your Zip code to be connected to the health insurance marketplace that serves your state

If you are an international student, please see Dean Carpenter if you have questions about how to obtain health insurance in the US.

Message Regarding Electronic Student Financial Responsibility Form
Written by Webmaster   
Monday, 31 March 2014

As part of the College’s ongoing efforts toward good stewardship we’re replacing the paper-based student financial responsibility agreement form with an electronically completed form. The completed form is not a new requirement, just a new way of collecting the completed form.

Rather than signing a paper document students will execute the electronic form maintained on the student portal. This will be required before they can register for courses for SU-14 and FA-14. If a student attempts to register before accepting the agreement, an alert will appear and state, “’Financial Hold – Agreement – You must accept the Student Financial Responsibility Agreement before registering. The agreement is found on the left side of this page in the ‘My Student Life’ section.” 

Although the form is not new, there is a new type of financial hold called the Financial Hold—Agreement. It only prevents registration. If a student has a financial agreement hold they will just need to accept the agreement before registering for courses.

The other type of financial hold, Financial Hold—Balance, will continue to be used, but only when the student has a past due balance. If a student has a financial balance hold, they should contact the Business Office to resolve the past due balance.

The use of the electronic form will be phased in. Initially it will apply only to continuing, traditional students. After it is determined that the electronic form is functioning as intended, it will also be applied to continuing students in Adult Studies and in Graduate Studies, and finally for incoming students of all types.

The student financial responsibility agreement is currently available on the Student Portal. Students can review and accept the agreement at any time before they wish to register.
