Student Accident Insurance
The Student Accident Insurance, paid by the college using student activity funds, provides coverage to all registered and enrolled curriculum students for covered injuries sustained while the insured student is:
- participating in activities sponsored or supervised by the school;
- traveling during such activities as a member of a group in transportation furnished or arranged by the school
- traveling directly to or from the insured's home premises and the site of such activities. JCC is considered the "home premises."
Information concerning effective/termination dates, definitions, accidental death, and specific loss benefits, accident medical expense benefits, exclusions, and payment of claims, may be found in the North Carolina Community and Technical Colleges Student Accident Insurance brochure which is available in the Student Services Office.
Procedures for Filing a Student Accident Insurance Claim
- Obtain an accident report form and insurance claim form from the Student Services Office within 30 days or as soon as reasonably possible.
- Complete both forms in entirety. If possible, have a faculty or staff member sign the accident report form.
- Return both forms to the secretary to the vice president of student services in the Student Services Office.
- It is the student’s responsibility to have all medical bills mailed directly to the insurance company. The insurance company’s information is located on the brochure given to the student.
Professional Liability Insurance
Professional liability insurance is required for all students in health care programs before beginning clinical practice in assigned hospitals and nursing affiliates. The cost is approximately $15 per year.
Student Health InsuranceJohnston Community College is pleased that students have an opportunity to purchase medical, vision, and dental insurance coverage through a group plan designed for community college students and their families.
The Community College Student Insurance medical plan and vision plan are offered by United Healthcare and the dental plan is offered by Humana.
United Healthcare and Humana are responsible for enrollment, eligibility verification, benefits administration, and premium collection for the plans.
United Healthcare Medical and Vision programs require a minimum of 3 credit hours per semester. Open enrollment for Fall 2011 is July 26 – August 15, 2011 and annual enrollment is July 26 – September 19, 2011.
Humana Dental Plan will be directly managed by Humana and they have waived the credit hour requirement, meaning this program is open to students, students' families, parents and community college employees. Humana has proposed an open enrollment with monthly auto bank draft or credit card payment.
It is important to note that JCC does not specifically endorse these plans or these providers. The plans are a voluntary option for our students. Interested students should contact the plan provider to directly enroll or compare with other plans.
