Student Health Services

Line divider

Limited health services are available. Special medical referrals and physical examinations for participants in athletic programs are scheduled by appointment with the consulting physician through the athletic trainer. Medical emergencies are handled by Security personnel who are qualified to give first aid. College staff and counselors are available to speak with students about personal health concerns and promote an awareness of good health practices.

All students registered in a nursing, radiography, medical laboratory technology, physical therapist assistant, flight technology, or funeral service program and/or specified clubs must complete and submit a health form to the appropriate academic dean and/or club advisor. Disabled students needing assistance should contact the Office of Special Services.

    Blood Bank Plan

    The college offers a blood bank plan to any student who wishes to become a member. Blood bank drives are held at the West Windsor Campus each semester. A student donation of one unit of blood covers the student and his/her immediate family should they need blood in the following 12 months.

    Accident-Only Insurance

    A student accident-only insurance policy, paid for through college fees, provides limited benefits to all oncampus students for the treatment of school-time injuries. Because this plan provides excess benefits only, students must first submit accident claims to their own private insurance provider (if any).  [claim form]

    Sickness Insurance

    The State of New Jersey no longer requires health insurance coverage for full time students enrolled in community colleges. Beginning with the fall 2013 semester, MCCC will no longer provide student sickness insurance coverage and will no longer include a health insurance fee on studentsí billing statements.

    If insurance coverage is not provided for you through parental or employer policies, students are encouraged to seek health insurance through the Affordable Care Act at the following website: http://marketplace.cms.gov/getofficialresources/widgets-and-badges/mp-badges-english.html

    Purchasing health insurance coverage is a studentís choice and responsibility. This includes all allied health students requiring insurance for their clinical site rotations.
