The State of New Jersey no longer requires health insurance coverage for full time students enrolled in community colleges. This means that Essex County College will no longer offer health insurance coverage to students, and will no longer include a health insurance fee in studentsí bill beginning Fall 2013 (September 2013).
The purchase of health insurance coverage is now an individual student choice and responsibility. This includes all allied health students who need health insurance for their clinical rotations.
The State of New Jersey has created a website with information on available health insurance providers. Please click on the link below to visit the website.
