Health insurance coverage minimizes the risk that you could be forced to interrupt your education because of financially devastating injury or illness. It gives you peace of mind so you can focus on your studies instead of worrying about what would happen if faced with overwhelming bills.
Unexpected medical care expenses can jeopardize a student’s plan for college. Investing in insurance provides a buffer for the possibility of unforeseen health problems.
The SBCC Student Health Fee covers medical and counseling services on campus and is not health insurance. See the "Insurance Enrollment "tab on the home page for Covered California enrollment information. Insurance brokers in the community can also help students find personal medical insurance coverage.
SBCC Accident Insurance Policy
Santa Barbara City College has a secondary policy to cover currently enrolled students in credit classes who have paid the student health fee for accidental injuries that occur in class or college sponsored activities. Accidents must be reported to the Student Health Services & Wellness Program office (SS-170) within 72 hours. The student is responsible for initiating all paperwork and billing their primary insurance company first. There is a $50 deductible on all claims. For full information on this policy you can pick up a bulletin at the Student Health Services Office (SS-170).
