You are required to maintain personal health insurance. KCU has opened a private health insurance exchange to students through their partnership with IXSolutions. Enroll in a health insurance plan, see if you qualify for financial assistance and learn more about other insurance coverage available to you on the IXSolutions website.
Current KCU students have also been satisfied with help from Insurance Pros, a company that assists individuals in finding the best coverage for their needs.
Needle-Stick Insurance Coverage
KCU-COM has partnered with Hartford Life Insurance Company to provide Needle-Stick Insurance coverage for all COM students. The Needle-Stick Insurance policy assists in covering medical expenses incurred by students during KCU-related activities that are not covered by the student's personal medical insurance. Please Note: This policy does not replace your personal medical insurance policy, and you are still required to carry you own personal medical insurance.
As with every insurance policy, exclusions apply. If a needle-stick injury occurs as a first- or second-year student, please contact Student Affairs for information as to whether your injury qualifies for this coverage and directions for filling out a medical claim form. If a needle-stick injury occurs as a third- or fourth-year student, please contact your Clerkship Coordinator for information as to whether your injury qualifies for this coverage and directions for filling out a medical claim form.
