In the majority of cases, health insurance charges are not eligible for payment by CES since the primary intent of the scholarship is to support standard tuition, fees, room and board charges.
Be sure to contact your college promptly to waive their insurance and avoid having to pay the charge yourself. Waiving your college’s insurance usually requires you to provide proof that you have other health insurance.
You do not need to submit an updated bill to CES after waiving your insurance.
If you are not eligible for family health insurance coverage and are able to document that you applied for Medicaid but do not qualify, CES funds may be able to pay your college health insurance charge.
If you are no longer covered under the same health insurance plan as when you graduated from MHS and are considering buying your college’s health insurance, here are other options:
- If you meet income eligibility for Medicaid:
- From Pennsylvania? Apply for PA Medical Assistance
- From another state? Find out how to apply for Medicaid in your state – click “Find Coverage for your Family”
