Health Insurance and Services

Health I​nsurance

For the 2013-2014 year, the Albany Law School student plan will consist of health insurance through Capital District Physician’s Health Plan (CDPHP), plus dental insurance and a discount vision plan. The annual policy is effective Aug. 1, 2013, through July 31, 2014. All full-time students (enrolled for nine or more credits) must be enrolled in Albany Law School’s plan or maintain other comparable health coverage.

New students are automatically enrolled in and charged for the student health insurance plan each year. If you are a new student who has other comparable health insurance and you would like to waive the Albany Law School student health insurance plan, you must submit a waiver online no later than Aug. 23, 2013.

Returning students who waived coverage in Albany Law School’s plan last year do not need to submit a new waiver form unless their coverage information has changed. 

Albany Medical Center St​udent Health Services
