Baranco-Hill Student Health Center
Health Center Policies
All registered students are automatically enrolled in the student insurance plan and the premium coverage is added to their tuition billing. Students must actively attend classes for at least the first 31 days after the date for which coverage is purchased.
The policy also has a natural death benefit of $10,000. For accidental death, natural disaster or dismemberment occurring within 365 days from the date of accidental bodily injury, the Company will pay additional benefits, in addition to the medical expense benefits. It is very important that all students assign a beneficiary during their enrollment so that this will not be an issue in the event of an untimely death.
To better serve students , they may access the insurance company using www.gmsouthwest.com and participate in LiveChat. LiveChat is an innovative, award winning, customer service program that allows students to chat with a member of the staff during hours of operation.
