Student Health Insurance
Written by Doug Van Wyngarden   
Tuesday, 27 January 2015

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.

The 2015-2016 FAFSA is available to be completed at www.fafsa.gov. The FAFSA is required to be considered for all need-based grants, federal loans and federal work-study. Students must file the FAFSA every year they wish to be considered for these resources.

IL Residents: The state of IL MAP Grant, which pays up to $4720/year, is paid to eligible students on a first-come, first-served basis, based on the date the FAFSA is filed. It is important to complete the FAFSA as soon as possible to be considered for these funds.
