Health Insurance

All MICA students are automatically enrolled in the MICA Health Insurance plan, which is billed as part of your tuition statement. If you are covered under other insurance from a parent or guardian, you can choose to waive the MICA health insurance. 

Please note that if you choose to waive your health insurance, you must complete the process each academic year. It does not automatically waive your insurance for your entire time at MICA.

Login information to view your health insurance options or to waive the MICA insurance can be found in the letter sent to your permanent address during the summer, or on the MICA Health Insurance webpage.
